The "Pump Boys" sell high octane on Highway 57 in Grand Ole Opry country and the "Dinettes", Prudie and Rhetta Cupp, run the Double Cupp diner next door.  Together they fashion an evening of country western songs that received unanimous raves on and off-Broadway.  With heartbreak and hilarity, they perform on guitars, piano, bass, and, yest, kitchen utensils.

"Both musically and theatrically, a triumph of ensemble playing.  It doesn't merely celebrate the value of friendship and life's simple pleasures, it embodies them." The New York Times

"Totally terrific...It is such fun." - The New York Times

Book, Lyrics, and Music by John Foley, Mark Hardwich, Debra Monk,  

Cass Morgan, John Schimmel, and Jim Wann
