About this show

Written by Jeremy Kehoe, this world premiere is a satirical comedy about a broken-down greeting card writer whose booze-inspired dreams of social revolution spring to life. Drowning in a three-whisky lunch hour, Bob Lyman has had enough. He can no longer slog the 288 steps from the subway to his dead-end job, only to wither away in his mom's one-bedroom apartment. His solution: revolution - take up arms against those who keep him chained at the bottom of the economic food chain. Bob's rants are pure lip service until he is thrust into his own revolutionary hallucination. Here, he finds himself the leader of an uprising where the poor have taken up arms against the privileged. But before he can lead the masses, Bob must convince his bartender buddy, Charlie, who seeks salvation solely from a higher power, of the need for revolution. Can Bob - with prodding from George Orwell and Charles Bukowski - convince Charlie? Or, will Russell Crowe drop the hammer and send them back to their punch-card lives? Elizabeth Marone directs.
