written by Leegrid Stevens
directed by Thomas Coté

Playwright Leegrid Stevens interviewed actual people in Mesquite, NV… layers of understanding within each scene... If it was a “real-ness” he was searching for, he has succeeded.

Director Thomas Coté makes moments of realization honest and clear.

…the play never loses its truth.

Liz Amberly brilliantly portrays Linda Hadley…

---Theater Pizzazz

Stevens is a clever writer who possesses an enviable amount of playwriting technique…

…director Thomas Coté keeps everything fast-paced and ridiculous, with a lot of support from his design team.


The mayoral campaign in the retirement community of Mesquite, Nevada turns nasty as accusations of illegal activity surrounding a $90 travel voucher are leaked to the local press. The accusations quickly divide the town and lead to a complete political upheaval in this dark comedy about power and politics in the USA.
