An alternately silly and surreal solo-comedy about Laura Bush that looks to shine light on the intersection of fact and fiction. More…
Laura Bush is an enigma wrapped in another enigma. She’s shy, beautiful, bookish, and in 1963, she blew through a stop sign and killed a guy. It was probably just an accident. Or maybe, just maybe…it was murder. Join Mrs. Bush for this evening of real-life reminiscences: of her childhood in Texas (all lies!), of her marriage to George W. Bush (a sham!), and of their rapid ascent to the very pinnacle of world power (an abomination!).
