The Totalitarians, presented by Chimera Ensemble
We might be on the brink of revolution in Nebraska. Penny, a compulsive and compulsively watchable candidate for state office, enlists the help of Francine, a silver-tongued operative. Francine's husband Jeffrey, a doctor, is lying to his dying patients, one of whom opens his eyes to Penny's nefarious plans for the Cornhusker State.

THE TOTALITARIANS, by playwright Peter Sinn Nachtrieb, is a raucous dark comedy about the state of modern political discourse, modern relationships, and how easy it is to believe truths without facts.

Chimera Ensemble is proud to present the Regional Premiere of The Totalitarians, directed by Scott Westerman.
