No Place to Go
Bobby Smith stars in this musical ode to the unemployed with an enterprising twist.
A dedicated corporate “information refiner” has learned that his company is moving to a cheaper, but very (very) remote, location and taking the jobs with it. Backed by a jazz band, this permanent part-timer must decide whether to go and uproot his family’s life or embark on an unknown venture.
Sardonic wit merges with clever jazz, blues and bluegrass music for an irreverent capitalist critique of the personal cost of doing business.
“Immensely appealing… music, jokes and personal narrative [are] tightly knitted together into one consistent human package.”
― The New York Times
