1980 (OR WHY I'M VOTING FOR JOHN ANDERSON)
September 18 - October 3, 2021
By Patricia Cotter
Directed by Ronan Marra
Featuring Chelsea Anderson, Bridget Haight, Jamaal McCray and Carly Wagers
A comedy about class, race and learning to believe that anything is possible, before you learn that it actually isn't. For a sliver of a shining moment in the fall of 1980, it looked as though a little known congressman from Illinois, John Anderson, might actually have a chance to be a contender for President of the United States. At least that's what the campaign staff of John Anderson For President believes. In a bare bones campaign office in Boston, Massachusetts, four very different (and slightly lost) people search for answers and hope that their long shot candidate will change their country and their lives.
