Many people have fantasized they could become Batman or Superman when they lack the power to right a wrong. But what about someone who decides to be a third-tier character that no one has heard of? Who Mourns for Bob the Goon? is a play in development about a man who believes he is the obscure Joker villain ‘Bob the Goon.’ The show follows him as he attends a therapy group for individuals who all think they are lesser known characters. Bob starts to unravel after the admittance of a new woman into the group who doesn’t quite belong. She causes him to recall his real history as a war veteran coping with psychological trauma, and question the therapy he is receiving.
