Casting Announcement: “Bobby Gould in Hell”

On behalf of Providence Players of Fairfax, Director Maria Watson is pleased to announce the cast of our next Providence Pop-Up production: Bobby Gould in Hell, which runs September 5-14.

Bobby Gould in Hell, by David Mamet

By David Mamet
Directed by Maria Watson

This is Bobby Gould’s day of reckoning. In Mamet’s dark comedy, the conniving movie mogul from Speed the Plow awakens in a strange room – the waiting room of Hell. A loquacious interrogator in fishing waders enters. The interrogator castigates Bobby for a litany of past sins, but Bobby argues that he’s not such a “bad guy.” His earthbound girlfriend appears and gets carried away in her anger at Bobby’s behavior.  In the end, Bobby is given a chance to save his soul, but what will he do with the opportunity?

This play contains strong language and adult content.
