Stage: Electoral Dysfunctions

Comedy and drama, red and blue, heaven and hell, Democrat, Republican and Independents and no, this isn’t about the 2016 election race for the White House.

It’s ‘Electoral Dysfunctions’, the Vortex Theater’s 10-minute play festival, pitting eight of Albuquerque’s top playwrights against each other in a friendly bit of political competition.

Some of the topics being broached in the shorts include generic political satire such as a Trump Presidency with an end-of-the-world scenario, hypothetical comedy involving alien first-contact, and many more, according to Co-Producer Billy Trabaudo.

The variety of playwrights working on this is as varied as the content coming in. Participants of the show range from Susan Erickson, to Richard E. Peck, former head of UNM, Liz McMasters and Barry Simon just to name a few.

Opens: August 28, 2016
Runs Through September 11, 2016
Times: Fri & Sat: 7:30 p.m.; Sun 2:00 p.m.
Tickets $22 / $15 with student ID
