WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Glory, Glory, Hallelujah! is the umbrella title of six short and bitingly satiric plays lampooning George W. Bush and his administration. The plays, all written by Gene Ruffini, have a total cast of 14. The plays are: Dancing in the Dock: Bush and cohorts are defendants in a war crimes trial. The Pickle of King George: King George is faced with turmoil and corruption in his court and in the colonies in the Revolutionary War. War Is Sell: Two stockbrokers vie in selling the glories and profits of war to their clients. The Sweetbird of Truth: A senior White House media specialist teaches a pretty young intern how to spin the news. Oh, Say Can You See: Americans enjoy a raucous July 4th picnic and invite Iraqi refugees to join them while ominous explosions sound in the distance. The Sparta Gene: A typical American family of the near future holds an intervention to try to rid a family member of pacifist behavior. Appropriate for audiences 12 and up.
