A Power Play is at The Atlantic TONIGHT!!!

17 Aug

Wait — to win an election a politician gets in bed with unscrupulous forces that then prove uncontrollable when they empower unstable people and incite violence? I wrote a play about that???


Last night at The Atlantic Theater Company‘s Asian-American Mixfest you got to see some actual Nazi-punching thanks to Qui Nguyen and the War is F**king Awesome! team. Tonight the A Power Play; Or, What’s-its-name team will take on our political establishment for embracing systems that somehow put us in a position of having to punch Nazis again. Also, cocklebread (link NSFW).

We’ve had a great time in rehearsals crafting this sucker. Join us tonight at 7pm!

A Power Play; Or, What’s-its-name

by A. Rey Pamatmat

Directed by May Adrales

After State Assemblywoman Alex Hathaway’s district suffers a terrible tragedy, she goes to great lengths to capture a House seat in the next election. She even employs a strange, nameless thing to gain victory over her enemies through supernatural practices. But with all that determination and those ancient powers on her side, how did Alex end up with a community in shambles and a gun pointed at her head?
