Maybe you could fly a jet! Maybe you could be a vet. Maybe you could be write a book! Maybe you should be a crook! And maybe you don't want to do anything but sit on the couch and watch Jerry Springer. Unemployable, a new work by local playwright Dustin Hansen and directed by nimbus alumnus Cockroach, follows the lives of two twenty-something art-slackers as they struggle to discover what they want to do, who they want to be, how they want to work-and find that they don't know half as much about themselves or each other as they thought they did. Part slapstick, part romantic comedy, part surreal dream, Unemployable is ultimately a coming-of-age story. Featuring a man in a dress.

Unemployable will be presented as part of the 2004 Minnesota Fringe Festival.
