‘POTUS’ play dates, times and ticket information


Play:  POTUS: Or, Behind Every Great Dumbass Are Seven Women Trying to Keep Him Alive

Playwright: Selina Fillinger

Genres:  Comedy, Political Satire

Synopsis:  When one four-letter word creates a public relations nightmare during international nuclear talks, the seven women orbiting the president will risk everything to keep the Commander in Chief out of trouble. Zany and hilarious, POTUS will have you rolling in the aisles only because it isn’t true… yet.

What The Critics Say:  “…amid the lunacy and laughter [it] also has some important things to say about women, power, and the lack of proper rewards for hard work and even harder-won achievement.” The Daily Beast

Director: Heather Johnson

  • Stacy Stauffer: Jean, POTUS’ often-in-the-dark press secretary
  • Celene Evans:  Margaret, POTUS’ savvy First Lady called upon to countenance philandering husband that the country can never meet
  • Nancy Antonio:  Harriet, POTUS’ ultra competent Chief of Staff
  • Gabrielle Lansden: Dusty, a gorgeous young farm girl who’s come to the White House to make an announcement that’s likely to give everyone a bad case of agita, if not worse
  • Sharon Isern:  Stephanie, POTUS’ hapless secretary who frets endlessly about job security and not just because of her boss’ flagging poll numbers
