AMERICAN HERO

June 26 – July 7
By Bess Wohl
Directed by Leigh Silverman

WORLD PREMIERE

Three ounces of meat. Two ounces of cheese. Four ounces of lettuce.
Seventeen-year-old Sheri and her co-workers at a new sandwich franchise have honed their skills making everything from the Turkey Torpedo to the Big Kahuna Tuna according to the corporate manual. But when the franchise owner mysteriously disappears, they are forced to improvise. See just how far these “sandwich artists” will go to keep their shop afloat in this hilarious, surreal tale of the struggle for optimism, the power of sandwiches, and the glorious, messy American Dream.
