The Outsider by Paul Slade Smith

Riot Act, Inc. presents The Outsider by Paul Slade Smith May 30 – June 1 and June 6 – 8 at 7:00 pm nightly in Riot Act’s Studio 305 in the Center for the Arts.  

Get ready for election year with this hysterical policial comedy. No matter how you vote, you’ll get a kick out of this parody of our current political machine.

Play description:

Ned Newley doesn’t even want to be governor. He’s terrified of public speaking; his poll numbers are impressively bad. To his ever-supportive Chief of Staff, Ned seems destined to fail. But political consultant Arthur Vance sees things differently: Ned might be the worst candidate to ever run for office. Unless the public is looking for… the worst candidate to ever run for office. A timely and hilarious comedy that skewers politics and celebrates democracy. ~Playscripts
