TWR019 - The Actual Real Deal Dictator (with Touchstone Theater)
(recorded on 27 Oct)
Again we are fortunate to be joined by Christopher and JP from TOUCHSTONE THEATER in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, USA. We sit together in the white room and talk about the upcoming elections, the role of the theatre, surrounding community, hope and fear and a great division.
Confronted with the opportunity, we speak to a REAL Dictator: Generalissimo Carlo Supremo, who coincidentally is also running for President of the United States (POTUS). He seems to be a really nice guy! We converse on his biography, his policies and his political and philosophical beliefs. We also play a little game together.
And we are inevitably confronted with questions: Who is Carlo Supremo? How did he get so far? What are his plans? And how can we get rid of him!?
The musical fragments are from Dictators 4 Dummies, written and directed by Christopher Shorr and produced by Touchstone Theater.

TOUCHSTONE THEATRE (Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, USA) was founded in 1981 as a street theatre troupe and slowly grew to be a professional not-for-profit theatre dedicated to the creation of original work. At its center is a resident ensemble of theatre artists rooted in the local community of Bethlehem, the Greater Lehigh Valley of Pennsylvania and the international community of Ensemble Theatres.
