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.
