Believing the Children
In 1992, Fran and Danny Keller were convicted of multiple counts of child sexual abuse at their Oak Hill day care center and sent to prison for 48 years. It's likely they were innocent. Indeed, it's very likely that no crime ever occurred – except an absurd and overzealous prosecution

It's a Wonderful Life, 70s Christmas Special, Starring the Fonz
Rob Nash's It's a Wonderful Life, 70s Christmas Special, Starring the Fonz is a masterful melding of Seventies television and Frank Capra's film, but unless one has studied either subject in depth, the meeting proves perplexing

Holy Cross Sucks!
Multitalented Rob Nash has reshaped his "Holy Cross Quadrilogy" -- tracking three friends through four years at a Catholic high school in Houston -- into the evening-length Holy Cross Sucks!, and while the abridgment causes too much to happen too quickly, the result is still as funny and memorable as the best and worst of schooldays.
"...The multi-multitalented Rob Nash plays 29 parts and strings together four of his..."

Rob Nash Does Romeo and Juliet
In Rob Nash's new show, he performs characters performing bits of Romeo and Juliet, and all the different parts come together like a theatrical jigsaw puzzle joining itself on the stage before us, forming a fine drama within a sharp comedy of eros and social dynamics.

Norman Normal Saves the World
With Norman Normal Saves the World, writer and solo performer Rob Nash creates a breakout vehicle for the sinus-clearing, "I could kill you right now" über-geek of Nash's Holy Cross Sucks!, and its absurd hilarity, along with Nash's usual clarity in characterization, chameleon comic abilities, and ever-sharp wit, make this Holy Cross installment a fine summer blockbuster of its own.
"...hour-plus evening in the excellent company of writer/performer Rob Nash, who returns to Austin with this latest installment of..."

Sex Farce
Watching Rob Nash morph from character to character at cell-phone speed is like watching Alexander Nemov perfect a somersault after a double flip in an Olympic floorshow. In his new solo show, Sex Farce, Nash handily embodies 14 characters and umpteen sound effects aided only by a chair and an offstage voice, but an unwieldy frame loses Nash's latest a couple of points. The play begins and ends in 2066, which does nothing but make Nash's job harder.
"...Rob Nash is a genius. Witnessing him morph from one character..."
