Nikolas Salmon / The Totalitarians


We’re delighted to have the fantastic NIKOLAS SALMON opening this weekend in the German premiere of THE TOTALITARIANS at Frankfurt’s English Theatre where it plays until 24 July.

Power, Politics and Paranoia

Francine is an ambitious, talented speechwriter without a major win on her résumé. In a desperate effort for relevance she’s attached herself to Penelope (Penny) Easter, a long-shot candidate for a vaguely defined position in the Nebraska state government. She is a fun creation, a faux-folksy former professional roller skater who seemingly has gotten into politics to escape middle-age. But when she surges in popularity following a go-for-broke speech, Francine embarks on a wild ride of professional and personal upheaval as she fights to push her client onto the national stage. The Totalitarians is a viciously funny vivisection of the farcical frenzy that is American politics.
