BOB: A Life in Five Acts by Peter Sinn Nachtrieb: Born in the bathroom of a White Castle restaurant in Louisville, Kentucky and abandoned by his birth mother, Bob nonetheless dreams of becoming a great man - maybe even of being on a plaque someday. But first, there is so much that he needs to learn and see. This Rags-to-riches-to-fame-to-fall-to-legacy-to-the-love-of-living-life tale follows Bob on an epic road trip towards that quintessential American ideal: happiness. From the writer of past Vertigo hits, boom and Hunter Gatherers, this is the comical and poignant story of one man's dream. A dream of greatness. The greatness of Bob.

The Sexual Neuroses of Our Parents by Lukas Barfuss: For several years, Dora has been heavily medicated to treat erratic and disruptive behavior. Now the girl has grown into a woman and her mother is eager to discover who her daughter has become. But when Dora's parents release her from her tranquilizers, they're not prepared for her potent sexual awakening. In this dark comedy of manners, Dora's naivety and curiosity expose the hypocrisies and manipulations of those around her. As Dora's explorations become increasingly uncomfortable for her parents, doctor, boss, and lover, she unwittingly reveals many of the ethical complexities that define modern sexuality.

The School for Lies by David Ives: It's 1666 and the brightest, wittiest salon in Paris is that of Celimene, a beautiful young widow so known for her satiric tongue she's being sued for it. Surrounded by shallow suitors, Celimene has managed to evade love since her beloved husband dies - until today, when Frank appears. Known for his own sparkling wit and acidic misanthropy, Frank turns Celimine's world upside-down, taking on her suitors, matching her barb for barb, and teaching her how to live again. This wild farce of furious tempo and stunning verbal display, all in very contemporary couplets, runs variations on Molier's The Misanthrope, which inspired it.
