Theatre On Consignment will conclude its 2012 season with November the political satire by David Mamet. The show will run October 4th-6th and 11th-13th at 8pm.
Mamet's Oval Office satire depicts one day in the life of a beleaguered American commander-in-chief.
November in a Presidential election year, and incumbent Charles Smith's
chances for re-election are looking grim. Approval ratings are down, his
money's running out, and nuclear war might be imminent. Though his
staff has thrown in the towel and his wife has begun to prepare for her
post-White House life, Chuck isn't ready to give up just yet. Amidst the
biggest fight of his political career, the President has to find time
to pardon a couple of turkeys — saving them from the slaughter before
Thanksgiving — and this simple PR event inspires Smith to risk it all in
attempt to win back public support. With Mamet's characteristic
no-holds-barred style, November is a scathingly hilarious take on the
state of America today and the lengths to which people will go to win. Our production shows off the local talents of Bryan Welsby, Walter Thomas Stewart, Leslie Seaton, Matt May, and Clarence Nickleson. Directed by David Bailey, Produced by Cherice Henderson
