a U.S. premiere by Robert William Sherwood directed by Blanka Zizka
September 20 – October 22, 2000
It’s been a tough presidential primary season (sound familiar?). Jerry, a campaign manager so ruthless that his picture should be next to the word in the dictionary, is sitting on top of the world: his candidate is leading in the polls. And then it happens – a tiny little wisp of… scandal. Dangled in front of him by an equally ferocious rival, it comes from a totally unexpected area of the front-runner’s life. Jerry has less than a day to find the problem and crush it, while his candidate must face an agonizing choice. In this riveting political thriller, a surprise hit on the London fringe, masters of spin play a high stakes chess game where the first prize is your government. Selected for the 2000 London Critics’ Choice Season by Time Out Magazine.
