Knock Knock

Synopsis:
Part of ObamAmerica: An Algerian prisoner is finally freed from Guantanamo Bay but what awaits him? An African-American university graduate campaigns for Obama in rough East Cleveland, Ohio but keeps getting stopped by armed and racist state troopers. A drone pilot in Arizona hides out in a nail bar. Edward Snowden chats to an Obama souvenir salesman in Washington DC. Bradley Manning dances in his jail cell. An ineffectual gun law is hotly debated on a TV news show. The voices of fourteen different playwrights are heard in ObamAmerica, the first theatre festival to focus purely on the effect this iconic American president has had on his country and on the world. ObamAmerica will give snapshots of the challenges that Barack Obama faces and the sometimes controversial choices he has made during his term of office. Playwrights include renowned TV and film writers Charles Evered (Adopt a Sailor starring Peter Coyote, USA's Monk) and Jacquelyn Reingold (NBC's Smash and Law and Order, HBO's In Treatment), many award winning playwrights from around the United States whose work has been seen at Primary Stages, Naked Angels, Manhattan Repertory Theater (NYC), Milwaukee Rep, Kennedy Center and New Jersey Rep as well as several American writers who have studied at the Royal Court Young Writers Programme and had work produced in London. Seven fifteen minute plays will be performed each evening for a week with seven different plays presented the following week.
