    Barbara Bush Never Slept Here

    Read the Offoffoff review

    A new play by David DeWitt about winning, losing and surviving. Barbara Bush Never Slept Here is set in a small Texas town in 2001 just after George W. Bush has been elected President. Patrick Kenilworth is a state representative and one of the many people who feels defeated. He seeks solace in both his ex-wife and a former colleague, Councilwoman Pansy Matthews. Soon a political scandal threatens to change all of their lives — and maybe even the outcome of the 2004 election . . . The production stars Pamela Dunlap, Alice King, Steven Friedman, Rachelle Mendez and David Mason with sets by Mikiko Suzuki, lighting by Brian Aldous, costumes by Meredith Moseley, and sound by Bart Fasbender. David DeWitt wrote Her Sonoma Story, recently staged at the Neighborhood Playhouse. For Circle East, he's contributed the short plays She Has Character and This Will Be the Death of Him. His work has also been staged by Primary Stages, Fourth Unity, Singularity, Sanctuary and the Manhattan Theatre Source Estrogenius Festival, among others. Regional stagings, including All for the New Man Band, in New Jersey, Arkansas and Texas. David has taught English at five colleges and draws his Texas knowledge from experience as a staffer at the San Antonio Light. He has a master's in acting from the University of South Carolina.
