Roger Sanders and Dana Scott Galloway present the New York premiere of The Klunch’s production of LAURA BUSH KILLED A GUY by Ian Allen. Directed by John Vreeke, the production stars Lisa Hodsoll, who received a 2107 Helen Hayes Award nomination for her portrayal of the former First Lady in the acclaimed Washington DC premiere.
Laura Bush is an enigma wrapped in another enigma. She is shy, bookish, beautiful, and in 1963, she blew through a stop sign and killed a guy. It was probably just an accident. Perhaps it was simply youthful recklessness. Or maybe, just maybe… it was murder! In LAURA BUSH KILLED A GUY, join Mrs. Bush for an evening of real-life reminiscences: of her childhood in Texas (untrue?), of her marriage to George W. Bush (a sham?), and of their rapid ascent to the very pinnacle of world power (an abomination?).
LAURA BUSH KILLED A GUY is an alternately silly and surreal comedy that looks to shine light on the intersection of fact and fiction – a topic more timely now than ever – as memories fade, and Laura Bush and her husband’s administration start to look like, well, maybe they weren’t so bad after all.
