- Written and Directed by
- James Morrison
- Produced by
- Riad Galayini
"...a warp force furious comedy that taps into the most universal and powerful emotion of the technological age - urban traffic Angst. On the surface, Morrison's premise is deceptively slight, but Ray's passionate diatribe is nothing less than a thinking man's outcry against the decline of Western civilization." ---Los Angeles Times
"Parking is a marvelously rich theatrical vignette. The fiery argument that ensues eloquently touches on issues of class and machismo. It is soon clear that what is at stake is not just parking protocol, but the price of manhood in present-day America." ---Philadelphia Inquirer
"Parking, one of the hits of the 1998 Fringe Festival and classic Fringe fare: challenging traditional notions of performance..." ---Philadelphia Magazine

A play by James Morrison

Framed against the backdrop of the mythic Alaska wilderness, Idle Wheels, with a highly theatrical interaction between extreme realism and poetic speculation, captures the tension between the comic and the serious, the mundane and the mysterious, the still and the spinning.
Idle Wheels is the first play written by James Morrison. The play was developed by the Sundance Institute's Playwright's Conference and was first produced in 1986 by The Salt Lake Acting Company. It received its West Coast Premiere in 1996 at The Road Theatre in Los Angeles.
"There are few artists in the American theatre with the intelligence and sheer audacity of James Morrison. As both actor and writer, his contribution to the theatre is undeniable in his powerful quest for truth."
