The Comrades 2017/18 Season (from the press release):

October 29 – November 21, 2017
BOB: A LIFE IN FIVE ACTS
By Peter Sinn Nachtrieb
at The Apollo Theater Studio, 2540 N Lincoln Avenue in Chicago

From an early age, Bob dreams of becoming a great man. The ensuing rags-to-riches-to-fame-to-fall-to-legacy-to-the-love-of-living-life tale follows Bob on an epic journey in just five acts. A play that explores American Mythology and how hard it is to figure out what will make one happy.

February 5 – February 27, 2018
ROW AFTER ROW
By Jessica Dickey
at The Apollo Theater Studio, 2540 N Lincoln Avenue in Chicago

Historical accuracy is paramount to Cal and Tom, two hardcore Civil War re-enactors, fresh off their latest Gettysburg battle. But their accuracy is compromised when they’re joined by a soldier with a less than authentic confederate uniform… and the wrong gender. Straddling 1863 and today, ROW AFTER ROW is a dark comedy about choosing your cause and finding your courage.
