Queensland Theatre POTUS or Behind Every Great Dumbass are Seven Women Trying to Keep Him Alive
Queensland Theatre, Concord Theatricals
or Behind Every Great Dumbass are Seven Women Trying to Keep Him Alive
LIFE, LIBERTY AND THE PURSUIT OF SANITY.
If you think you’re having a bad day, you should talk to the current administration of the White House. Assembled behind a fictitious – but very recognisable – President of the United States (POTUS) is a crack team of highly competent women who are dealing with a highly incompetent boss.
When the world’s most powerful man makes a foul-mouthed four-letter faux pas in front of every major news outlet – and several foreign dignitaries – the expletive lights the fuse on an explosive 24 hours in the Oval Office. Throw in some misplaced hallucinogenic drugs, a sex scandal and an assassination attempt, it’s anyone’s guess who’ll make it to clock-off.
In the spirit of Wag The Dog and VEEP, POTUS is a femme-fuelled political farce that earned three Tony nominations in 2022. Here, in its Australian premiere, POTUS is powered by a star-spangled all-female ensemble, including Amy Ingram (Family Values).
Grab the girls and charge your glass – if not for you, then for the women in charge of the man in charge of the free world.
