Hailed by the Chicago Sun Times as "zany, clever and often surprisingly moving," 44 Plays For 44 Presidents is a two-hour show comprised of short, biographical scenes highlighting the lives of all the American presidents, their successes and failures are celebrated by a company of actors who take turns donning a star spangled coat that symbolizes the presidency. Scenes shift frequently between the comic and the tragic as audience members are left to ponder where the presidency has gone ... and where it will go next.
SCAD's production will be part of the National Plays for Presidents Festival, the largest election year theater project in American History.
