Originally commissioned by the National New Play Network in partnership with Full Stage USA at New Dramatists, and made possible by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.

Penelope Easter's dream is to serve her country and, with the help of her feisty new campaign manager, Francine Jefferson, she just might win her first election. Trouble looms though, when Francine's husband, Jeffrey, hooks up with a mysterious stranger. In a world of dishonesty, spin and deliberate manipulation, can more than one truth exist? No one is safe in the world premiere production of THE TOTALITARIANS, a play that finds the funny on the both sides of the aisle.

Mr. Nachtrieb…has a gift for darkly funny dialogue…
