The Outsider

Event by Twin City Players

Fri. March 03, 2023 | - Sun. March 19, 2023 | Start and end times vary depending on day.

Twin City Players announces the fourth production of its 2022-2023 90th Mainstage Season of Comedy, The Outsider by Paul Slade Smith. 

Ned Newley doesn't even want to be governor. He's terrified of public speaking; his poll numbers are impressively bad. To his ever-supportive Chief of Staff, Ned seems destined to fail. But political consultant Arthur Vance sees things differently: Ned might be the worst candidate to ever run for office. Unless the public is looking for... the worst candidate to ever run for office. A timely and hilarious comedy that skewers politics and celebrates democracy.
