In this solo theater piece at the intersection of standup, poetry slam, and cabaret, Bobby recalls a darkly comic incident from his childhood in a working-class Catholic neighborhood in the Bronx, involving a Cold War-themed breakfast cereal, an attack on a neighbor's dollhouse, and an underfed pet turtle named Doctor Smith.
