This fall, TheatreWorks New Milford will debut the political comedy NOVEMBER by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright, David Mamet.
NOVEMBER is the 2008 Tony Award-winning, scathingly hilarious take on the state of America today and the lengths to which people will go to win. Set just days before a presidential election, incumbent Charles Smith’s chances for re-election are looking grim. Approval ratings are down, his money’s running out, and nuclear war might be imminent. But Smith isn’t going down without a fight. As per White House tradition, the President pardons a couple turkeys before Thanksgiving, and it is this simple PR event that inspires Smith to risk it all in a hilarious attempt to make an eleventh-hour comeback.
The cast features some of the area’s finest actors: Robyn Maitland (New Fairfield), Mike Ritts (Oxford), JoNathan Jacobson (Litchfield), Tom Libonate (Danbury), and Matt McQuail (Newtown).
NOVEMBER is under the direction of Richard Pettibone of New Milford.
