Staged Reading: THE INEVITABLE by Bob Burnett

Tuesday September 14, 2010 - 08:59:00 PM

THE INEVITABLE examines Hillary Clinton’s failed bid for the presidency the most fascinating event during the 2008 presidential campaign. I believe the roots of Clinton’s failure were psychological. She began the campaign believing her nomination and election were certain and, therefore, lost touch with her primary intention. Once the bubble of inevitability burst, Clinton faced an external and internal crisis. She had to reorganize her political campaign and get her head straight. As Clinton struggled to get her political act together, warring instincts within her own personality battled on stage. By the time this conflict was resolved, Clinton had become the effective candidate many of us expected, but it was too late for her to overcome Obama’s delegate lead. 


The INEVITABLE is directed by Ann Brebner and features Joy Carlin as Eleanor Roosevelt plus actors from the PORCHLIGHT Theatre Company.
