"A poignant examination of a longtime family business buckling under the strain of urban renewal"
– DAILY HERALD

May 24 – June 22, 2008 in Goodman's Owen Theatre

Around 2 hours

A world premiere

Gas For Less was once a rowdy North Side Chicago hangout where neighbors from all backgrounds came together to watch the Bears. Now gentrification has all but ruined the small, family-owned business and things only get worse when a sudden act of violence erupts at the station. Can Gas For Less be saved—and is it even worth saving?

Brett Neveu received the Goodman’s Ofner Prize for Heritage. His other plays include The Meek; The Earl; 4 Murders; Eric LaRue; American Dead; Eagle Hills, Eagle Ridge, Eagle Landing; twentyone and The Last Barbecue.
