This Oval Office satire depicts one day in the life of a beleaguered American commander-in-chief. It’s November in a Presidential election year, and incumbent Charles Smith’s chances for reelection are looking grim. Amidst the biggest fight of his political career, the President has to find time to pardon a couple of turkeys and this simple PR event inspires Smith to risk it all in attempt to win back public support. November is a scathing (and hilarious) take on the state of America today and the lengths to which people will go to win.
David Mamet's 'November,' presented by Proud Kate Theatre Project, opened on November 2nd at the Greenhouse Theatre.
"...the pace is brisk and the cast have good comic timing. Jim Poole flies off the handle with aplomb as the bellicose commander in chief." - Zak Thompson, The Reader
