WHY I WANT TO FUCK RONALD REAGAN
The year is 1971, and Ronald Reagans California governorship has raised a lot of questions: Is neoconservatism the savior America needs? What are women and what do we do with them? Is consumerism the new psychosis? Why are car crashes turning everyone on? Is the age of Hollywood over? Can American citizens be nostalgic for death? And most importantly, why do I want to fuck Ronald Reagan?
WHY I WANT TO FUCK RONALD REAGAN is a work of literary and theatrical collage that blends interaction and intimacy with an interrogation of the cultural precepts behind conservatism. Drawing inspiration from the work of JG Ballard, Kathy Acker, Eve Babitz, Vito Acconci, Karen Finley, and others, the director & his cast commune with the worlds of celebrity and pathology by using spectacle, interplay, and movement. The production imagines Reagans California as one part surrealist fantasy, one part interstate highway, and one part psych ward, as each character blazes their own path through a dystopic past.
