The Strangerer By Mickle Maher says
The 2004 presidential debate mixed with Albert Camus’ absurdist philosophy…seriously.

Multi-award-winning Austin favorites Jason Phelps, Ken Webster, and Robert Pierson team up to portray Jim Lehrer, Senator John Kerry, and President George W. Bush in this darkly hilarious satire that follows on the heels of Cap T and Mickle Maher’s smash hits THERE IS A HAPPINESS THAT MORNING IS (Austin Critics’ Table Best Comedy Nomination) and SPIRITS TO ENFORCE (Austin Critics’ Table Best Drama Award).

The first debate of the 2004 presidential election suddenly takes a wickedly funny turn as Mickle Maher masterfully infuses parts of Albert Camus’ absurdist philosophy into the night’s proceedings (sounds crazy right?). Bush and Kerry are bizarrely forced to grapple with the killing of innocent people, their inner psyches, and the power of theatre. No need to brush up on your Camus or even swear political allegiance before coming to what will be the most memorable debates you have ever witnessed.

Cap T is proud to produce the Austin premiere of Mickle Maher’s quirky, philosophical dark comedy directed by two time Austin Critics’ Table and B. Iden Payne Award winning director Mark Pickell.

Running Time: 95 minutes without intermission.
