Jane, A Theatre Company

Production Notes 

David Mamet's biting satire about an American president whose popularity is at an all time low and it is election time. Willing to anything to ensure that he gets re-elected and so receives his coveted Presidential library, Charles H.P. Smith is a desperate man. Turkey blessings gone wrong, Native American faux pas, and lesbian marriages on the table, it is all he can do to get through the day. Hilarious, irreverent and sharp in true Mamet fashion this production was mounted by an upcoming new company in Portland: Jane, a Theatre Company with a tight ensemble headed by the excellent Brian Harcourt  as the bumbling President. The show was a critical success enjoying a highly successful run for the young new company.
