First Comrades Presentation - BOB: A LIFE IN FIVE ACTS

By Peter Sinn Nachtrieb

BOB: A LIFE IN FIVE ACTS explores American Mythology and how hard it is to figure out what will make one happy. A rags-to-riches-to-fame-to-fall-to-legacy-to-the-love-of-living-life tale following Bob, who had always wanted to be a great man, on a journey in just five acts.

Second Comrades Presentation - ROW AFTER ROW

By Jessica Dickey

ROW AFTER ROW is a dark comedy about two hardcore Civil War re-enactors, Cal and Tom, fresh off their latest Gettysburg battle. Their accuracy is compromised when they’re joined by a soldier with a less than authentic confederate uniform and the wrong gender.
