"A fresh night of theater that takes some genuine risks"
– CHICAGO TRIBUNE

Apr 2 - May 1, 2016 in Goodman's Owen Theatre

Around 75 minutes, no intermission

Welcome to a new era in American politics.

The Republican Party is looking for a more progressive identity leading up to election season. Enter Carlyle Meyers, an ambitious African American lawyer working for the party who agrees to share why he became a member of the GOP. The result is hilarious and startling satire—an insightful and bold examination of the hot-button racial issues facing America.
