About the show

The Theater Center presents an examination of our current presidential election, mounted as a town-hall type gathering in a local bar. Written by former New Mexico State Senator Joe Carraro. More…

Based on the real-life stories of average Joes and Janes, Carraro's new play features many musings, monologues, and situations that bring the injustices we face as a society at the hands of big corporations and big government to light. The show is more a "movement" than a play. It examines the disenchantment of this unique presidential election, and aims to provide a forum for political change through audience engagement.

Banal, Disappointing, Confusing, Slow

See it if You have a reason to. The actors do what they can with the work and it is interesting to watch them work with it.

Also Overall the script was way too ambitious. You are hit with a lot of in... Read more Read less
