BOB: A Life in Five Acts by Peter Sinn Nachtrieb, directed by Nate Sullivan, opens this weekend. Shows will be March 13, 14, 20 & 21 at 7:30, in the basement of the Unitarian Universalist Center at 10 s. Gilbert, Iowa City. All shows start at 7:30.
Bob: A Life in Five Acts chronicles the highly unusual life of Bob and his lifelong quest to become a “Great Man.” Born and abandoned in the bathroom of a fast food restaurant, Bob energetically embarks on an epic journey across America and encounters inspiring generosity, crushing hardships, blissful happiness, stunning coincidences, wrong turns, lucky breaks, true love and heartbreaking loss. Along the way, Bob meets a myriad of fellow countrymen all struggling to find their own place in the hullaballoo of it all. Will Bob’s real life ever be able to live up to his dream? Bob is a comedic exploration of American mythology and values, the treacherous pursuit of happiness, and discovering what it means to be truly “great.”
