About this show

Set just days before a presidential election, this new comedy from Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright (Glengarry Glen Ross) and political satirist (Wag the Dog) David Mamet proves once and for all that there is no lower place than the highest office in the land. Upon learning that he lacks the funds to properly campaign or construct a legacy-ensuring library, the incumbent Commander-in-Chief is inspired to tap an unlikely income source: the turkey industry. Thanksgiving traditions, Indian casinos on Nantucket, and the prospect of officiating a live, televised lesbian wedding demand attention in this riotous and ever-so-timely play. "A hilarious demonstration of the fact that we live in an age of equality: all classes are criminal!" (The New Yorker)
