See it if ur a politics wonk & want to (re)examine an important speech in the Carter presidency, its legacy & the potential impact it could have had.
Don't see it if you're not interested in historical fiction masked as docu-theater; ur a climate change denier; u seek a plot-heavy, action-filled drama.
See it if you remember President Carter's staff. Or if you are curious about presidential speech writing. Clever character reversal held my interest
Don't see it if you have no idea why any particular presidential speech deserves this much attention. The play fails to explain it. Some of it seems forced
"Political plots can be dry as toast. Hatem attempts to spice things up by crossing the genders of the actors playing Carter and young Cynthia; the convention is an interesting choice although it really doesn't add any new light to the characters or story and is sometimes distracting."
