Carlyle

Written by Thomas Bradshaw
Directed by Benjamin Kamine
April 2 – May 1, 2016 in the Owen
A World Premiere Goodman Commission

“Darkly hilarious provocateur” (The Village Voice) Thomas Bradshaw presents an outrageous comedy of political culture clashes—just in time for election year. In a ferocious comedy of political “bash” and cultural “clash,” Carlyle Meyers is an ambitious politician facing one potentially major barrier in his burgeoning career: He is an African American in the Republican Party. Hoping to win over skeptical voters, Carlyle takes to the stage to present an autobiographical play that recounts how and why he became a member of the GOP. Brimming with Bradshaw’s signature piercing humor, this world premiere takes no prisoners as it scrutinizes the effects of affirmative action, party alliance and the state of race in America.
