THE STORY: Nat Paradis is a Red Sox-loving part-time dad who manages Paradis’ Last Convenient Store, the last convenient place to get gas—or anything—before the Canadian border to the north and the North Maine Woods to the west. When an old flame returns to town, Nat gets a chance to rekindle a romance he gave up on years ago. But sparks fly as he’s forced to choose between new love and old. LAST GAS takes a hilarious and heartbreakingly hard look at love lost and found, and at what it means to “get back to happy.”
“Peppered with poignant characters [and] sharp writing, nicely bridging humor and seriousness." —The Portland Phoenix. “LAST GAS [is] a full tank of unfulfilled desires. Very funny and surprisingly thought-provoking.” —Portland Press Herald. “A warm and genuinely moving evening. Very funny, and there’s definitely romance in it, [but] if this a romantic comedy, then so is Chekhov.” —CITY Newspaper (Rochester, NY). “A bittersweet romance. An undeniable winner.” —Democrat & Chronicle (Rochester, NY).
