IN PROGRESS PLAY READING:
CANIDIDACY OF DUNCES by Mel Neet
April 14 & 15
Set in 2072, 100 years after the historic 1972 reelection of Richard Nixon, whose defeat of Democrat George McGovern was cinched after the mental history of McGovern’s running mate, Thomas Eagleton, became front page fodder.

In the 2072 election, the party names, if not their basic tenets, have changed. Blue Bicycle incumbent Frans Hopeful, who has battled depression, is counting down until his debate against Red Harvest candidate – and Big Pharmacy poster girl – Penny Ribbon. The former has publicly turned down the pharmaceutical industry’s political contributions while the latter has nabbed them, and Hopeful’s former campaign manager, Tug Apostly.

Following Sunday’s staged reading of the play, there will be a moderator-led Q&A session in which the audience is invited to share their comments.

Cast
Tyson Schroeder, Tim Ahlenius, Katie Gilchrist, Kimberely Queen, Cody Wyoming, Vaughn Schultz, David Wayne Reed & Heidi Van
