SYNOPSIS: A character steps onto a bare stage and stares, puzzled, at a spot above and behind the audience. Another character joins her and asks, "What are you looking at?" So begins Politricks, a humorous but thought-provoking look at the evolution of politics. While the two agree they see something, they argue over the nature of what they see. Others enter and are persuaded, by various means, to join sides. Eventually, the original point of disagreement gets lost; by the screaming climax of the play, opposing sides know only one thing: that their side is good and right, and the other side is evil and wrong. Without sets, costumes or numerous props, Caution: Politricks prompts both immediate entertainment and long-lasting questions that will keep your audience talking for hours after the curtain has closed.
