It’s 1804 and President Tommy J has ordered Louis N. Clark on a voyage to map America’s uncharted territory. Aided by Bigfoot, Sacagawea, and his own bravado, Louis makes his way across America, discovering and rediscovering everything that has been lost and left behind in the unbearable hardship that we call These United States. A modern American epic, Rock, Egg, Spoon is an anachronistic dark comedy about privilege, deafness, and giving credit where credit is due.
