June Miller has dreamt of stardom ever since her humble beginnings in an RV off Highway 41. When her Papa’s windfall from church bingo unexpectedly paves the way for June to audition for a dream role in New York City, her wildest dreams finally feel within reach. PROSPERITY! chases a daddy-daughter duo on a cross-country road trip as they navigate a decoupage landscape of unraveling opportunity. This Brechtian drag epic throws us head first into the fugue state of our American dreams.
