    The Totalitarians

    Theatre en Bloc is proud to present THE TOTALITARIANS by Peter Sinn Nachtrieb,  a raucous dark comedy about the state of American politics, modern relationships and how easy it is to believe truths without facts. 

    THE TOTALITARIANS follows Francine, the ambitious speechwriter for a rich housewife’s vanity campaign for public office, who has stumbled upon pure gold: a perfectly patriotic slogan. Even though it is totally meaningless and her doctor husband disapproves, Francine quickly realizes that with this slogan, she can turn the campaign around and make her unpredictable, gaffe-prone candidate electrifyingly powerful—and finally, just maybe, get herself out of Nebraska.

    This laugh-out-loud satire that will keep you on the edge of your seat!
