Dacha’s summertime spectacular, DEARS IN HEADLIGHTS, invites audiences back to the drive-in theatre for an evening of movie magic—only this time, with a troupe of live actors instead of a silver screen. Accompanied by an FM radio soundtrack, this fully devised and larger-than-life love letter to classic cinema combines pastiche, clowning, vignettes, and physical theatre to create a playful immersive experience for viewers with and without cars. Whether you’d rather scare yourself silly with a horror movie or laugh along to a rom-com, you’ll be delighted by this original new take on a beloved summer pastime.
Intended for audiences aged 10+, DEARS IN HEADLIGHTS asks you to keep your arms, legs, and laughter inside the vehicle at all times. Drive-ins and walk-ups welcome starting July 30.

Just like a drive-in this play can be watched from chairs/picnic blankets or from inside your car. Car seats will offer an extra bit of immersion - we'll bring the action right to your windshield and rearview mirror.
When viewing from a car, actors will come into light contact with your vehicle, using a similar scope to when you go to the car wash! They may gently touch or lean on your car, spray water on your windshield, or place a couple of props on your hood.
Dacha tickets our events on a sliding scale to make them financially accessible for everyone. There is no difference in experience between the price options.
Pay-What-You-Can tickets are available to every performance.
Please note that the Eventbrite interface only allows you to purchase one PWYC at a time, so if you would like to purchase multiple, you will need to complete the check-out for each ticket individually.
