CCT Presents Political Comedy
November 21 @ 8:00 pm
The Caribbean Community Theatre presents “The Outsider,” a comedy by Paul Slade Smith. There are seven chances to catch this silly play of political proportions over three weekends. Show dates are Nov. 6-7, 13-14 and 20-21, and one Sunday matinee on Nov. 15.
The story: Ned Newley doesn’t want to be governor. He’s terrified of public speaking; his poll numbers are impressively bad. To his ever-supportive chief of staff, Ned seems destined to fail. But political consultant Arthur Vance sees things differently: Ned might be the worst candidate to ever run for office. Unless the public is looking for…the worst candidate to ever run for office. A timely and hilarious comedy that skewers politics and celebrates democracy.
Masks are required for entry into CCT. As permitted by the posted guidelines, the theatre’s seating capacity has been reduced. Tickets are $20 for adults, with discounts for seniors, students and CCT members, and may be purchased (for cash only) at the CCT box office prior to each show, which opens 45 minutes before curtain. This play is not recommended for children under age 13.
