Carlyle-Goodman Theatre


In a ferocious comedy of political “bash” and cultural “clash,” Carlyle Meyers is an ambitious politician facing one potentially major barrier in his burgeoning career: He is an African American in the Republican Party. Hoping to win over skeptical voters, Carlyle takes to the stage to present an autobiographical play that recounts how and why he became a member of the GOP. Brimming with Thomas Bradshaw’s signature piercing humor, this world premiere takes no prisoners as it scrutinizes the effects of affirmative action, party alliance and the state of race in America.
