George W. Bush Hilariously Exposed as Rough Theater Premieres ''DUMBYA'S
RAPTURE,'' a New Political Comedy
October 5, 2004
Experience a million laughs as acclaimed Rough Theater returns to
the LA stage with "DUMBYA'S RAPTURE" a new, preemptive,
political comedy of mass destruction. Based on facts and telling the
uproarious tale of one appointed president, two wars and thousands
dead, "DUMBYA'S RAPTURE" continues Rough Theater's
tradition of shouting hysterically funny theatrical truth to power
during an election season.
As malevolent chatter about a terrorist attack increases, the
President is more concerned with assigning nicknames and going on
vacation than with the duties of his office. Surrounded by a cabinet
that includes a power mad VP, a Secretary of Defense suffering from
war fever, a tongue-speaking Attorney General obsessed with pot,
prostitution and covering up naked statues, a National Security
Adviser too clueless to understand a threat and a Secretary of State
too compromised to speak his mind when he isn't locked in the
basement, "DUMBYA'S RAPTURE" is the true story of what
lead to the terrorist attacks of 9/11 and the misbegotten Iraqi
misadventure that followed. Join Rough Theater as these tragic and
colossal errors of judgment become a laugh out loud comedy of errors
in "DUMBYA'S RAPTURE."
Written and directed by Eric Diamond, "DUMBYA'S RAPTURE"
features Tom Booker, Bill Chott, Eric Diamond, Rebecca Harrell,
Richard Henry, Kenneth Hughes, Monique McIntyre, Ryan Radis and
Steve Wilcox. Opening Friday, October 15th, 2004 "DUMBYA'S
RAPTURE" plays Friday and Saturday nights at 8:00 PM at the
Salvation Theater, 1519 Griffith Park Blvd. (where Griffith Park
Blvd. ends at Sunset Blvd. in beautiful downtown Silver Lake), Los
Angeles, Ca 90026.
After asking the nation to sacrifice through shopping, assuring us
that Bin Laden would be captured dead or alive and declaring mission
accomplished in Mesopotamia, why cry about W's lies when you can
laugh yourself silly at "DUMBYA'S RAPTURE." We invite you
to join us for an evening of sidesplitting political satire during
our gala opening weekend, Friday, October 15th and Saturday, October
16th, 2004. Please call to reserve your complimentary press seats
ASAP. One appointed president, 2 wars, thousands dead, four more
years? "DUMBYA'S RAPTURE," don't get left behind!
