Bobbie Clearly Summary:
Nobody from the town of Milton, Nebraska ever gave much thought to Bobbie before the tragedy in the cornfield. Two years later, it’s hard for them to think of much else. In the darkly comic Bobbie Clearly, a community opens up about life in the aftermath and making sense of senseless violence.
About Bobbie Clearly:
Bobbie Clearly was a finalist for the National Playwrights Conference at the Eugene O’Neill Theater. It was developed in part through workshops and a public staged reading at Steep in 2015.
Steep Artistic Director Peter Moore says. “…It’s a challenging play, and it feels dangerous at times…”.
That sounds like a Steep Production!
