"The Bob and Al Show"
What would happen if characters could talk back to their playwright as they are being written? The Bob and Al Show by Geoffrey Howard will answer that question. The Penn State Berks production will be directed by Radhica Ganapathy, Lecturer in Theatre, and it will be performed February 26-28 and March 4-6 at 8:00 p.m. in the Perkins Student Center Auditorium.
The play's three main characters-Bob, Al, and Carol-endure the rough start of the century as they are thrown into three one-acts designed for one evening of theatre. Barreling through exposition, conflicts, and futile opening lines, they finally land in a mystery murder plot. But how can there be a new mystery play when every plot line known to man has been worked to death already? Much less, can this be done with only three characters?
