The Final Table

April 8- 26 May 2, 2015
Studio Two, Riffe Center

Imagine Richard Nixon, Warren G. Harding, Dwight Eisenhower, Harry S. Truman and Lyndon B. Johnson in a high stakes game of poker in the afterlife. Don't look now but the dealer periodically talks to God through her Bluetooth. History, satire, and black comedy ultimately lead to an understanding of the desire for power.
