GEORGE W. BUSH HILARIOUSLY EXPOSED AS ROUGH THEATER PREMIERES "DUMBYA'S RAPTURE", A NEW POLITICAL COMEDY.
Die laughing as LA's critically acclaimed Rough Theater premieres "DUMBYA'S RAPTURE" in NYC beginning Saturday, October 7th, 2006. A political satire that dramatizes the real and true history of the US 2001 – 2006, "DUMBYA'S RAPTURE" tells the uproarious tale of one president, two wars and thousands dead around the world. With "DUMBYA'S RAPTURE", Rough Theater proudly brings its tradition of shouting theatrical truth to power during an election season to the NY stage for the first time.
As malevolent chatter about a terrorist attack increases, the President is more concerned with assigning nicknames and going on vacation than with the duties of his office. Surrounded by a cabinet that includes a power mad VP, a Secretary of Defense suffering from war fever, a tongue speaking Attorney General obsessed with pot, prostitution and covering up naked statues, a National Security Adviser too clueless to understand a threat and a Secretary of State too compromised to speak his mind when he isn't locked in the basement, "DUMBYA'S RAPTURE" is the true story of what lead to the terrorist attacks of 9/11 and the misbegotten Iraqi misadventure that followed. Join Rough Theater as these tragic and colossal errors of judgment become a laugh out loud comedy of errors in "DUMBYA'S RAPTURE".
Written and directed by Eric Diamond, "DUMBYA'S RAPTURE" features Geoff Barnes, Chris Behan, Christopher Cole, Eric Diamond, Maryam Fatima, Charles J. Roby, Fred Rueck, Morgan Lindsey Tachco, Chris Von Hoffmann and Joshua Young. Opening Saturday, October 7th, 2006, "DUMBYA'S RAPTURE" plays Wednesdays at 8:00 PM and Saturdays at 10:30 PM through Saturday, November 4th, 2006 at The Red Room, 85 East Fourth Street, between 2nd and 3rd Aves., Third Floor (no wheelchair access), New York, NY 10003.
After asking the nation to sacrifice through shopping, assuring us that Bin Laden would be captured dead or alive and declaring mission accomplished in Mesopotamia, why cry about W's lies when you can laugh yourself silly at "DUMBYA'S RAPTURE". One president, two wars, thousands dead, don't get left behind!
