Critical Love for “Bob”

I’m thrilled to share that the folks at Times Square Central came to see our showcase production of Who Mourns for Bob the Goon? at Dixon Place, and they loved it (and rather liked me as well)!  You can read the full review here.

An excerpt:  “Playwright, Joshua Young, skillfully masters the psyches of his characters so that we may look voyeuristically at the kind of every day life that precedes [sic] war. Young manages to find light and humor and depth and reality. Beautifully directed by Lucia Bellini, this play is well worth seeing.”

Given that the purpose of the showcase was to help get this new work to to the public and drum up interest in the show, we couldn’t be happier that it’s now being noticed critically as well.  Keep your eyes on www.WhoMournsForBobTheGoon.com and my site for more news on the future of this piece!

Coming Soon: Bob the Goon!

Looking for something fun to do this Devil Night/ Hell Night / Gate Night (or whatever the night before Halloween is called near you)?  Come out to see the one-night-only showcase production of the brand-new play Who Mourns for Bob the Goon? at Dixon Place.  This piece has been in development for almost a year, and after a few very successful readings (and an award at the Plant Connections Theatre Festivity) we’re very excited to finally share it in a fully-produced form.

Who Mourns for Bob the Goon?

Who Mourns for Bob the Goon? is a new play about a man who believes he is the obscure comic book character ‘Bob the Goon,’ a loyal Joker henchman from the Batman comics. The audience follows Bob as he attends a special therapy group for individuals who all believe they are (or were) third tier comic book characters. Bob starts to unravel after the admittance of a new woman, Langly, into the group.

The characters explore their past as the play switches from their realistic lives and settings to the fantastical comic book realms they think they inhabit.
