POTUS OR BEHIND EVERY GREAT DUMBASS ARE SEVEN WOMEN TRYING TO KEEP HIM ALIVE
LIFE, LIBERTY AND THE PURSUIT OF SANITY.
If you think you’re having a bad day, you should talk to the current administration of the White House. Assembled behind a fictitious — but very recognisable — President of the United States (POTUS) is a crack team of highly competent women who are dealing with a highly incompetent boss.
When the world’s most powerful man makes a foul-mouthed four-letter faux pas in front of every major news outlet — and several foreign dignitaries — the expletive lights the fuse on an explosive 24 hours in the Oval Office. Throw in some misplaced hallucinogenic drugs, a sex scandal and an assassination attempt, it’s anyone’s guess who’ll make it to clock-off.
In the spirit of Wag The Dog and Veep, POTUS is a femme-fuelled political farce that earned three Tony nominations in 2022. Here, in its Australian premiere, POTUS is powered by a star-spangled all-female ensemble, including Amy Ingram (Family Values).
Grab the girls and charge your glass — if not for you, then for the women in charge of the man in charge of the free world.
