About this show

We might be on the brink of revolution in Nebraska. Penny, a compulsive and compulsively watchable candidate for state office, enlists the help of Francine, a silver-tongued operative. Francine's husband, Jeffrey, a doctor, is lying to his dying patients, one of whom opens his eyes to Penny's nefarious plans for the Cornhusker State.

The Totalitarians, by playwright Peter Sinn Nachtrieb, is a raucous dark comedy about the state of modern political discourse, modern relationships, and how easy it is to believe truths without facts.
