UIndy Theatre presents dark political comedy

totalitarians_fbevent

A ridiculous but smart satire about a Nebraska political race is the second theatre production this season from the Department of Theatre at the University of Indianapolis.

The Totalitarians by Peter Sinn Nachtrieb opens Dec. 2 in UIndy’s Esch Hall Studio Theatre, 1400 E. Hanna Ave.

Society might be on the brink of revolution in Nebraska. Penny, a compulsive and compulsively watchable candidate for state office enlists the help of Francine, a silver-tongued operative. Francine’s husband Jeffrey, a doctor, is lying to his dying patients—one of whom opens his eyes to Penny’s nefarious plans for the Cornhusker State. The Totalitarians is a raucous dark comedy about the state of modern political discourse, modern relationships, and how easy it is to believe truths without facts.

The run continues Dec. 3-4 and 8-10 at 8 p.m. Admission is $12 for general admission, $10 for UIndy alumni, senior citizens (62+), groups of 8 or more, and non-UIndy students. UIndy students, faculty, and staff are free with ID. Thrifty Thursday (Dec. 8) is $6 per ticket. Free preview is Dec. 1 at 8 p.m. Tickets and more information are available at uindy.edu/etc or (317) 788-3251

*Warning: This production may contains extreme adult language and content that some may find inappropriate and is similar to an R-rated movie.

The Totalitarians is presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc. New York
