A Solo Play by Brad McEntire

Robert J. Roberts has a huge problem with the world. In particular he really dislikes people. All people. One day he becomes the unlikely custodian of a magical goldfish and Mr. Robert's misanthropic view of the world is seriously challenged. Can a person be frustrated into being a better human being?

"McEntire's an expert at swimming solo onstage, charming the audience with sly looks and inventive storytelling." ~ Elaine Liner, Dallas Observer 
"The story takes you on a precisely laid out journey through one man’s psyche while making you feel like you shouldn’t be there, listening." ~ Richard Blake, PegasusNews.com 
"[McEntire is] like a cross between Seinfeld’s George Costanza and comedian Lewis Black" ~ Nancy Churnin, DallasNews.com
"One of McEntire’s many talents is being able to couch very real meditations on life into extraordinary stories." ~ Kris Noteboom, TheaterJones.com
"A tale of transformation and redemption... very absorbing..." ~ Rob Hubbard, Pioneer Press
