About this show

The Common Air, written by Alex Lyras and Robert McCaskill, features Lyras portraying six diverse characters during the mother of all delays at JFK airport. The reason is unknown and a spiraling game of "telephone" ensues in an effort to uncover the truth. Characters include an Iraqi Cab Driver with a winning Reality show idea, an Art Gallery Owner seduced by ancient Greek cave art, a Corporate Attorney imparting rapid fire, ethically gray advice, a sample stealing DJ named PJ, a sinister Philosophy Professor mixing logic and irrationality in a west Texas accent, and an Iraqi-American just returned from civil war in Baghdad.
