Event Details

This fully produced (set, costumes, props) staged reading of Kerr Lockhart's timely political comedy / drama launches Script2Stage2Screen's 2022-2023 season.

The small mid-west town of Liberty's Corner faces unincorporation until recently-retired fire chief Kevin McInerney (Allan H. Jensen) is convinced to run for mayor, His brother-in-law Jack (Kevin Hayles). diner-owner Stella (Pamela Cole), Iraqi immigrant short-order cook and civil engineer Tariq (Stephen Blackwell) and town crier Melanie (Linda Cooke) are his biggest boosters--until he discovers he'll lose his pension if he's elected mayor, as double-dipping is prohibited.

Gears are switched and the campaign becomes "Don't Vote For Me" until a stranger, Carl Fiedler (Larry Dyekman) appears and announces he's running for mayor to sell off the town's assets. Just how far would you go to save your town? When the only way to keep things as they are is to do something completely different. Keep your town, your friends, or your house? Pick two. One of "them" was always one of us.
