American Hero

American Hero Postcard

by Bess Wohl

Directed by Suzanne Beal
REGIONAL PREMIERE
November 2-20, 2016
Studio Theatre 

At a toasted subs franchise in the local mall, three up-and-coming “sandwich artists”—a teenager, a single mom, and a downsized refugee from corporate banking—are perfecting the mustard-to-cheese ratio, according to the company manual. When their shot at the American dream is interrupted by a series of strange events, they become unlikely allies in a post-recession world. “American Hero” is a supersized dark comedy about life, liberty, and the pursuit of sandwiches. “[Bess Wohl’s] darkly funny comedy… takes a wry, compassionate attitude toward American workers barely clinging to the bottom rungs of the economic ladder.” - The New York Times
