A world premiere by Colin Speer Crowley
Chicago: June 1920. The Republican National Convention is in full swing. Warren G. Harding, senator from Ohio, is overwhelmed by the prospect of becoming the nominee of the Republican Party for president. Hounded by an ambitious campaign manager, a paralyzingly superstitious wife, a star-struck young mistress, and the frightening pull of inevitability, Harding seems destined to be president – or is he? The play explores the extent to which fate controls our lives. Is there a higher power out there that determines our destinies or are those life event we deem “fateful” merely the aggregate result of the deficiencies and idiosyncrasies of flawed human beings?
