about this item

"Airline highway is a rollicking play that, with great insight, humor, and subtlety, examines a tight-knit community of "outsiders" over the course of a single, legendary day. The Hummingbird Hotel is the figurative or literal home for a group of strippers, French Quarter service workers, hustlers, and poets who are bound together by their bad luck, bad decisions, and complete lack of pretense. Presiding over them is Miss Roby, a beloved former burlesque performer who has requested a funeral before shedies. As the people whose lives she has touched gather to celebrate her, they must face themselves, each other, and the consequence of the choices they have made. Airline highway shows us the tenuous hold that community, authenticity, and real-time ritual have on a rapidly gentrifying New Orleans." --Back cover.
