HILLARY AGONISTES

by: Nick Salamone
directed by: Jon Lawrence Rivera
"Mr Salamone treats his fantastical subject matter with serious purpose, and he often gets Mrs Clinton eerily right." New York Times

WEST COAST PREMIERE - May/June 2008
AMERICAN PREMIERE - August 2007
WORLD PREMIERE - August 2006

Part Greek tragedy, part blackest comedy, HILLARY AGONISTES presents the cautionary tale of Hillary Clinton, newly elected President of the United States. One bright spring day 65 million people disappear – First Husband Bill among them. Is it the rapture? Pat Robertson, Stephen Hawking, a Papal emissary, the Antichrist, and a Muslim convert named Chelsea offer their opinions as Hillary agonizes and attempts to avert Armageddon.

  • "Nick Salamone is a very talented man who has written what must surely be one of the best, full-scale new plays in Edinburgh this year... HILLARY AGONISTES is a well-constructed satire that deserves to have a life after Edinburgh." The British Theatre Guide
