Pay-What-You-Can Performances start on June 2, with performances continuing through June 29.  Shows starts at 8:oo.

Francine, the ambitious speechwriter for a rich housewife s vanity campaign for public office, has stumbled upon pure gold: a perfectly patriotic slogan. So what if it’s totally meaningless? And so what if her doctor husband disapproves? With it Francine can turn the campaign around and make her unpredictable, gaffe-prone candidate electrifyingly powerful and finally, just maybe, get herself out of Nebraska.

Written by Peter Sinn Nachtrieb, author of Boom, this high-energy farce exposes just how vacuous and absurd our political language has become. If you worship at the altar of Colbert, if you religiously watch The Daily Show, you won’t want to miss The Totalitarians.
