Southern Rep and UNO opened the regional premiere of local playwright Lisa D'Amour's Airline Highway at UNO's Nims Theatre. The company is extending its run with shows Thursday Nov. 3 through Sun. Nov. 6.

Set in a run-down, cheap hotel on the edge of New Orleans, Airline Highway captures a day in the lives of people who live or hang out at the hotel, including an aging prostitute, a French Quarter bar's karaoke host, a handyman who scrapes together a living by fixing odds and ends and a former burlesque dancer who's decided to throw herself a wake so she won't miss the party when she's gone. Airline Highway is reviewed here.

D'Amour's work premiered at Steppenwolf Theatre, which commissioned it and ran on Broadway in 2015.
