COMING SOON:

THE TOTALITARIANS

by Peter Sinn Nachtrieb

Directed by Peter Mohrmann

June 22 – July 24, 2016
Sacramento Premiere

THE TOTALITARIANS is a viciously funny vivisection of the frenzy that is American politics. When dopey Lt. Governor for Nebraska candidate (and former roller derby star) Penelope Easter surges in popularity following a go-for-broke speech, her adviser Francine embarks on a wild ride of professional and personal upheaval as she fights to push her client onto the national stage. Peter Sinn Nachtrieb’s raucous dark comedy digs into the hypocrisy of politics with scathing wit and reckless abandon and guarantees to be the perfect tonic for this summer’s election headache.

“Gory Hilarity…Nachtrieb’s mastery of plentiful, surefire, unexpected punch lines and circuitous plot twists is on full display.” – San Francisco Chronicle
