The theater is up a hill from the parking lot, so if you have mobility problems get dropped off on top or arrange for limited handicap parking. Also seating is open, so arrive 30 minutes early for the best choice of seats.

David Mamet has created a hilarious comedy about bad behavior in high places. U.S. President Charles Smith wants a second term, but the outlook is bleak. Poll numbers are in single digits, his campaign manager has gone on vacation, there is no money in the war chest, and his wife is already decorating his memorial library. His only hope comes from the turkey lobby, and involves pardoning a turkey or two before Thanksgiving; and his brilliant speechwriter, who has her own demands.

Reviewing the Broadway production from the 2005 season, the New York Times called the play “a wall-to-wall laugh track” while the _Chicago Tribune _labeled _November _"howlingly funny."
