About the Show

"The World's Largest Aluminum Foil Ball" - Book, Music & Lyrics by Robert John Ford


Business is slow at a roadside attraction run by a simple rural couple and their socially-challenged son...until mysterious strangers appear, eager to view the main novelty item - the world's largest aluminum foil ball.  When it is discovered that the ball has recently been included on the Department of Homeland Security's list of potential terrorist targets, they become suspicious of the "tourists," their true motives, and the curious timing of their visit.  This dark comedy takes the audience on a road trip to a deep red state, where the main culture is the culture of fear.
