Pulitzer-Prize winner Wendy Wasserstein spins a comic and moving tale about the pitfalls that await political appointees. As a respected health crusader and devoted wife and mother, Dr. Lyssa Hughes seems perfect for the role of U.S. Surgeon General, until a chance remark at a fashionable brunch sets off a media feeding frenzy.

David Birney as Walter Abrahmson
Anna Gunn as Quincy Quince
Jamie Hanes as Billy Robbins
Gregory Itzin as Timber Tucker
Michael Malone as Morrow McCarthy
Kevin McCarthy as Senator Alan Hughes
Mary McDonnell as Lyssa Dent Hughes
Claudette Nevins as Charlie ‘Chubby’ Hughes
Denise Nicholas as Judith B. Kaufman

Directed by Beth Miles. Recorded before a live audience at the Skirball Cultural Center, Los Angeles in October of 1998.
