Based on a true story, 'The Bachelors' introduces us to Bob Neal, a London interior decorator who returns to his failing Wisconsin hometown of Mineral Point in 1934 and hires a local man, Edgar Hellum, to help him restore a historic rock cottage. It is a humorous and touching look at a life two men spend together. Their restoration anchors what has become a thriving artistic community in Mineral Point, WI today.|
'The Bachelors' was a semifinalist in Pride Films and Plays' Great Gay Screenplay Competition. It features Nelson Rodriguez and Nicholas Stockwell as Bob Neal and Edgar Hellum. Others in the cast include Sam Button-Harrison, David Beskey, Joan McGrath, Jamie Smith, Beth Richards, and Tom Chiola. Charles Berglund directs based on David Zak's original staging.
