The Outsider

Performance Dates
Opening Performance

THE OUTSIDER follows Ned Newley - a hardworking public servant who doesn't even want to be governor. He's terrified of public speaking, his poll numbers are impressively bad and even his ever-supportive Chief of Staff thinks he’s destined to fail. But according to hotshot political analyst Arthur Vance, while Ned might be the worst candidate to ever run for office, the public just might be looking for... the worst candidate to ever run for office. THE OUTSIDER is a timely and hilarious comedy that skewers politics and celebrates democracy, and we’re happy to give our DC audiences a good laugh to kick off the season.
