KOLT Run Creations’ second local effort is excellent—and funny—political theater. Constance Congdon’s play takes a look at the intersection of sex, morality and high-powered politics. Pitch-perfect delivery from Shelly Sandford (President Joni), and Kelley Ogden (Rachel) provides plenty of laughs and lots of chemistry. The production keeps it simple, relying on language and ideas. Some of that language is a bit rough and all of the ideas are unsettling, so this isn’t a play for kids—but it’s precisely what political theater ought to be. KOLT Run Creations at the
