“I Drive Killer 65” is the central piece of a collection of short plays called, appropriately, I Drive Killer 65 and Other Stories.” The plays address male/female relationships from a variety of angles. This play is named for Ohio River Boulevard, Route 65, a major commuting route from the northern suburbs to Downtown Pittsburgh. Once one of the most dangerous roads in Pennsylvania, its drivers bore the bumper sticker “Pray for Me – I Drive Killer 65.”In “I Drive Killer 65,” Woman has left her home in San Francisco to follow Man to Pittsburgh, where he has taken a very good job. The struggle of the long drive from coast to almost coast, coupled with the uniquely challenging driving conditions in Pittsburgh, the play uses the couple’s driving habits and vehicle choices to show a relationship on the brink.
