WORLD PREMIERE

The Book of Bob

BY ARTHUR HOLDEN
DIRECTED BY ELLEN DAVID

SYNOPSIS

Witty and mischievous.
A contemporary retelling of The Book of Job.

Meet Bob, a middle-aged professor who works hard, disdains evil and lives green. He eats a low-fat/high-fibre diet, recycles and composts, and doesn’t possess a car or cellphone as a matter of principle. A woman stands behind him. This is God. Observing that Bob is a self-congratulatory soul, She assaults his righteous existence with a host of misfortunes, starting with the disruptive use of a smartphone during one of his lectures. Bob confronts Her assaults - even though he is an atheist and denies God’s very existence.

Fed on Centaur offerings from Fennario to Fugard, Shakespeare to Stoppard, this institution has educated and entertained me. In the very place that nurtured my dreams, I have made the journey from captivated public, to actor and now director... and I am thrilled to be directing Arthur Holden’s beautiful play ‘The Book of Bob’, a modern day fable that transcends time.
– Ellen David
