Date: December 1 2021
In this sharp-edged satire, thug businessman Harry Brock heads to Washington D.C., determined to buy his way into a law amendment. His only liability? Billie Dawn, his ex-chorus line girlfriend who sticks out like a sore thumb. Harry hires a reporter to teach Billie poise, but a little education goes a long way, and Harry gets more than he bargained for. A suspenseful comedy about political corruption, abuse and attitudes of the 1940’s – or of today?
