Bobtales

Bobtales – our full length reading series will bring five full scripts to you in 2019. We see Bobtales as a platform for our writers to share their stories with you and learn about their works through rehearsal and audience response. Some of these will be full length versions of some of the Bobsnacks you may have seen in the past. We are excited to share the following stories with you this year!

February 22nd, 2019

We presented a double billing that featured the full versions of two excerpts you may remember from our October and December Bobsnacks events. First, was the full pilot of Poison Ivy League by Cristina Luzarraga and then the full version of Rachel Bykowski‘s play 25 Light Years From Now. Our incredible cast included Veronica Cruz, Ryan Czerwonko, DeLeon Dallas, Greg Hansen, Esaú C. Mora, Stephanie Salgado, Margo Tillstrom, Jenna Zhu. With direction from Emily Penick and Lisa Bol and Stage Management by Paige Barnes.

We presented The Brothers’ Chapel by Tyler J.C. Whidden.

A stand-up comic looking for a hideout and redemption, finds himself helping his preacher brother save his ministry. Anti-religion, but great at public speaking, the comedian uses his skills to draw a crowd. Is there much of a difference between comedy clubs and churches?

 

September 19th, 2019

We presented Conflict Resolution by Jeffry Chastang.

In 1984 Chicago, two grade school teachers, one, an African-American nearing retirement, the other, a Canadian transplant twenty years her junior, clash over the direction of a rally for students after two sixth graders shoot each other.

December 2019

We will be presenting At The Rivers End by Bianca Sams.

There is nothing worst than death except coming back to life to find your
whole world is a mess. At the River’s End is a dark ride through the mind of
Captain Brielle Davenport, a war hero back from the dead, trying to reconcile her
past and her present to decide whether she has the ability to survive her future.

Times and locations will be announced via social media closer to the date of the performance.
