Family dynamics can be the source of endless comedic material, as is the case in this year's Susan Glaspell Award winner, “In the Car with Blossom and Len” by Joni Fritz. In this funny and poignant new play,  a basket full of unpaid bills for chemical engineer  Lenny Gold’s laboratory is discovered by one of his adult  daughters,  unveiling a lifetime of secrets, a mysterious silent partner, and a few other challenges which must be met by this family.   “In the Car..” is a delightful family saga  about growing up, growing older and where you put the keys.
