Rhubarb Jam

Institute History

  • 1996 Playwrights Lab


When two friends have a falling out over a sandwich, their misunderstanding escalates until it threatens to bring on World War IV. Only when the two friends get some help from an unexpected source can they find a way to resolve their conflict – and then they have to defuse the international crisis brought on by their rhubarb jam.


As you use our Online Archives, please understand that the information presented from Festivals, Labs, and other activities is taken directly from official publications from each year. While this information is limited and doesn't necessarily represent the full list of participants (e.g. actors and crew), it is the list given to us by the main film/play/project contact at the time, based on the space restrictions of our publications. Each entry in the Online Archives is meant as a historical record of a particular film, play, or project at the time of its involvement with Sundance Institute. For this reason, we can only amend an entry if a name is misspelled, or if the entry does not correctly reflect the original publication.
