About this show

Dramatists network playwright Mark Burns' Land of the Free, directed by Babes With Blades ensemble member Beth Cummings. It's Election Day, 2004, and a simple ride to the polls turns into a hostage situation in this high-energy, high stakes political comedy, featuring Anne Coulter, Oscar Wilde, Antigone, King Lear, the ringtone version of "I Won't Back Down", and plenty of found-weapon stage combat. Will "calm" tea conquer partisan hysteria? Do cell phones survive submersion in toilets? Can Republicans and Democrats find any common ground?
