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.

By Jessica Dickey
