President Harding wants to be with his mistress. Industrialist Henry Ford wants to be President. Inventor Thomas Edison wonders how the three of them got stuck in the woods together. Inspired by an actual camping trip taken by the three men in 1921, Mark St. Germain’s Off-Broadway hit is a hilarious adventure with surprising relevance to today’s politics.
