BUBBA is a one-man show inspired by true events and was written and performed by Michael Thomas Walker with direction by Melissa Firlit.


After his father’s death in 2011, Michael spent 9 months researching his father’s life and conducted interviews with those who knew him. Through this study, he came to terms with his father’s death and went on to do what any good actor would do: take the story to the stage.


This production of BUBBA was part of the Planet Connections Festivity.
