BOB: A Life in Five Acts
Written by Peter Sinn Nachtrieb
Directed by Julia Traber
An absurdist tale of the American dream and one man’s odyssey from a White Castle hamburger stand through the rest stops of America on his way to find himself. Called, "A comic amalgam of Brechtian epic theatre and vaudeville” by TDF Stages, “Bob” is a comedic exploration of American mythology and values, the treacherous pursuit of happiness, and discovering what it means to be truly "great."

Due to the nature of the play Bob is for mature audiences only.

More about “The Heidi Chronicles”–“Winner of the Pulitzer Prize, the Tony Award, the New York Drama Critics Circle Award, the Outer Critics Circle Award, the Drama Desk Award, the Hull-Warriner Award and the Susan Smith Blackburn Prize, The Heidi Chronicles traces the coming of age of Heidi Holland from the radically activist sixties through the success-oriented eighties. As Heidi navigates triumphs and failures in work and romance, this snapshot of a generation remains relevant today through its witty exploration of friendship and feminism.
