The story is described as follows: "A raucous retelling of the rise and fall of Pasadena's most groundbreaking '80s rockers told through the foggy lens of a lonely, out of work MTV-VJ. Eddie and Dave is a gender-bending new play by Amy Staats about hubris, friendship, family, fame, musical genius and what happens when the person you need is the one you find most irritating."

Joining Staats in the cast will be Vanessa Aspillaga (Amy and the Orphans), Megan Hill (Do You Feel Anger), Omer Abbas Salem, and Adina Verson (Indecent).

The creative team includes scenic design by Reid Thompson, costume design by Montana Levi Blanco, lighting design by Jiyoun Chang, sound design by Palmer Hefferan, original compositions by Michael Thurber, and projections by Shawn Boyle. Casting is by Caparelliotis Casting: Lauren Port, CSA.
