This show is part of the Dream Up Festival. This is the official blurb: It's a new morning for America as a US presidential hopeful floats his candidacy on YouTube. He makes his announcement in front of a debris-strewn property in New Orleans Ninth Ward, which was devastated by Hurricane Katrina a year before. But the cameras are missing the real breaking news. away from the campaign trail, in a diner on the edge of town, the candidate's wife lies in wait, ready to ambush the candidate's mistress. The unraveling of this presidential campaign starts before it begins with a distinctly feminine battle for power that has no morals, just practical means of securing interests. Power politics at it best, Realpolitik conjures Shakespearean overtones with singular parallels to Macbeth. This political satire shoots an arrow directly from 11th century Scotland to land with a bulls-eye into the heart of modern American political life.
