TCC Theatre presents Peter Sinn Nachtrieb’s “Bob: A Life in Five Acts”

Tidewater Community College Theatre will present Peter Sinn Nachtrieb’s “Bob: A Life in Five Acts” in the Black Box Theatre Nov. 12-21.

The theater is in the Academic Building on TCC’s Chesapeake Campus, 1428 Cedar Road.

“Bob: A Life in Five Acts” chronicles the highly unusual life of Bob and his lifelong quest to become “a Great Man.”

Born and abandoned in the bathroom of a fast-food restaurant, Bob energetically embarks on an epic journey across America and encounters inspiring generosity, crushing hardships, blissful happiness, stunning coincidences, wrong turns, lucky breaks, true love and heartbreaking loss.

Along the way, he meets a myriad of fellow countrymen all struggling to find their own place in the hullaballoo of it all. The play is a comedic exploration of American mythology and values, the treacherous pursuit of happiness, and discovering what it means to be truly “great.”

“Bob” opens on Nov. 12 and continues through Nov. 14 with performances at 8 p.m. A 2 p.m. show will be held on Nov. 15. In addition, performances will be held Nov. 18-21 at 8 p.m.

Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for students and seniors.

Payment is by cash or checks at the door. The box office opens 45 minutes prior to show time.

You can also purchase tickets with a credit card at the Chesapeake Campus Business Office, in the Pass Building, during normal business hours.
