"I" is complete. After a review by renown script doctor Paul Young (of "Lord of the Rings" fame), we will begin the casting process. Our plan is to mount the production beginning January 2. Stay tuned!
When Justice John Roberts calls the Senate to order in the impeachment trial of George W. Bush, he unleashes a battle of titans. With everything on the line, the most powerful legal minds in the country lock horns over whether the President should be removed from office for “high crimes and misdemeanors.” As the apparently incontrovertible evidence of Bush’s guilt piles up from witness after impassioned witness, you’d be a fool to bet on W. But in the second act, the President himself testifies and pulls out all the stops, delivering a speech reminiscent of Jack Nicholson’s “You can’t handle the truth” monologue in A FEW GOOD MEN. He correctly indicts a complicit Congress, a silent press and an apathetic public of being just as guilty as he is. In the end, as the audience files out of the theater, it’s up to each individual to decide where the truth lies.
