PAST PRODUCTIONS

Bea Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table

Chatting with the Tea Party

By Rich Orloff

 

In this documentary-style play, a New York liberal playwright travels around the country (including Wisconsin!) interviewing leaders of local Tea Party groups, to get to know people whose political beliefs are diametrically opposed to his.

 

In a journey that’s at times disturbing, humorous, moving, and always thought-provoking, the playwright discovers not only how and if he can affect the people he meets, but also how they may be influencing him.

 

Everything the interviewees say in the play comes directly from the interviews. Staged reading, September 2014
