Rubber Chicken Theater presents the next play in its inaugural season: "Bushed: A Poetical, Political, Partly Musical Tragicomedy in Two Acts," written by the first poet laureate of Duluth, Barton Sutter. "Bushed" will be performed at 7 p.m. Oct. 2-4, 9-11 and 16-18 in the new Harbor City International School Theater, located two blocks east of the Depot at 332 W. Michigan St. in downtown Duluth. Tickets are $20 for adults and $15 for students and seniors. Union members with a valid union card will receive a $2 discount.
"Bushed" is a new play by Barton Sutter, who is the only author to win the Minnesota Book Award in three different categories: poetry, fiction and creative non-fiction. "Bushed" is written in verse and includes original music and arrangements by Marya Hart, a two-time Minnesota Music Award winner.
The play chronicles the rise and fall of the Bush administration. It is funny, edgy, sad and it rhymes -- just like the last eight years of George W. Bush. The play features Chris Nollet as George W. Bush, Cheri Tesarek as Dick Cheney, John Munson as Colin Powell, Susan Larson as Condoleeza Rice, Betsy Gregg as Laura Bush, Taylor Martin-Romme as Alberto Gonzales and George H. W. Bush, and Ric Stevens as John Ashcroft. The seven actors also portray American citizens, who act as a Greek chorus throughout the play, commenting on the action and the characters onstage. "Bushed" contains adult language and situations.
"Bushed" is being sponsored by the Duluth AFL-CIO Central Labor Body, the Duluth Building and Construction Trades Council, the Minnesota AFL-CIO, Hell's Kitchen, Northern Lights Books & Gifts and Francis and Jocelyn Heid.
