“Confederates” is playing at Lucie Stern in Palo Alto through August 7. Ken and I recommend it. It is a good, suspenseful, thought-provoking drama, appropriate for the presidential primary season. TheatreWorks’ notes:
Father’s running for President. Daughter’s running wild. And the press is running out of time. With the campaign in full swing, someone unfurls a confederate flag and the scandal hits the fan. The provocative hit of TheatreWorks’ 2015 New Works Festival, this headline-hot political drama is a fresh, fascinating look at today’s muckraking media and the world it relentlessly pursues.
