About the Show

Brave New Productions invites you to the world premiere of Tim Boland’s darkly comedic new play for one weekend only this March.

The president has a secret – one he’s kept all his life – and the news is about to break.

U.S. President Bill Barber’s public and private personas are colliding, and he can no longer stand to hide who he truly is. He wants to come clean to the American people, but when? And how?

His staff can’t agree whether the revelation will be a threat to national security, or simply an innocuous tabloid headline. It looks like he’s going to have to go rogue on this one…

How much honesty does a leader owe its public? How much privacy does a public owe its leader?

How do we stand up for truth, even when it’s difficult or dangerous to express?

This explosive new script will be presented as a staged reading, followed by a discussion with the cast about issues the play raises regarding sexual identity, morality, and truth in politics.

  • Written by: Tim Boland

  • Directed by : Emma McQueen
