Bob is a teenage girl on the run. Hitchhiking her way east, Bob tells her various drivers stories about her family and her boyfriend who's in a band, but something's not right. Bob's stories are jumbled with strange fables she tells herself, something about a magic lake inside a bottle and a princess born into horrible conditions; it's clear that Bob may not be the most accurate source of information about what happened before she took to the road. See Bob Run, a one-woman show by Canadian playwright Daniel MacIvor, is a darkly weird combination of unreliable narrator and undeniable horror. Soundstage Productions presents this psychological drama at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 7 p.m. Sunday (November 6 through 8) at the Marble Stage Theater in the ArtSpace at Crestwood Court (Watson and Sappington roads, Crestwood; www.soundstageproductions.net or firstname.lastname@example.org). Tickets are $10.
