  3. Fact Sheet

Reeling from birthday vertigo, Bob searches for meaning in his life. Crisis looms. His career as a dentist seems futile, his patients annoy him and his friendships seem empty and boring. Full of surprises, "Bob's Birthday" is a hilarous appraisal of self-scrutiny that is part of every birthday.
