Written by Brian Thorstenson
Directed by Gary Graves
Produced in: 2011

A Central Works Method Play developed in collaboration with Richard Frederick, Gary Graves, Daniel Redmond, Olivia Rosaldo, Cole Alexander Smith, Gregory Scharpen & Jan Zvaifler.

Graham Greene meets Liberace in this shamelessly farcical mix of the personal and the political.  Paradise was never so sweet as it is for the US Ambassador and his wife living on a remote and little-known island in the Caribbean.  It’s the eve of Carnival when the Ambassador learns he’s being reassigned to an obscure, war-torn country that he can’t even pronounce – and that’s just the beginning of his problems!  Identities double, genders bend, and subterfuge surfaces as events spin out of control in this outrageous send–up of “domestic diplomacy.”
