MeX Theater, Kentucky Center
$16; 8 p.m. (2 p.m. Nov. 4)

This satire by David Mamet, presented by the Louisville Repertory Co. and directed by J.R. Stuart, takes the audience into a single day in the life of a beleaguered American president. In the story, incumbent Charles Smith (Sean Childress) faces grim re-election prospects. But in a swirling, angry sea of political tidal waves, he finds the time to pardon two turkeys in advance of Thanksgiving — and this seemingly innocuous PR move inspires the commander-in-chief to risk everything to win back public support. Hilarity ensues. If you go, be prepared for a take-no-prisoners look at the state of America and the lengths to which people — politicians in particular — will go to win. —Kevin Gibson
