“The main character in this film, Gary, is a modern man who befriends a Civil War soldier. Gary is self-absorbed and lazy, like a lot of modern men. The soldier tries to teach Gary how to be an honorable and responsible. And Gary teaches the soldier about modern times. It’s a bit of an ‘Odd Couple’ situation that leads to both comedic and heartfelt moments.” -- Todd Bieber, former Mifflinburg-area resident.

Bieber is a writer and director for UCB Theatre in New York. He worked for the Onion News Networks in 2009 when they won an unexpected Peabody award. His work has been featured by the New York Times, the Huffington Post and Entertainment Weekly. Follow him on Twitter at @ToddBieber.
