I wish. There's nothing in the least shocking about Sem Megson's new political comedy, which focuses on the aftermath of a PR disaster: a news rag publishing photos of a mayor leaving a cheap motel, hooker in tow. And the story has more holes than an old t-shirt. We're supposed to believe that an incumbent urban politician is totally clueless when it comes to spin control? The occasional good lines are overshadowed by impatience at the plot gaps, implausible misunderstandings, and long-foreseen revelations. Director Anne Kreitman moves her uneven four-person cast around the stage with some degree of professionalism. But no one, no matter how talented, could transform this tedious script into a play worth seeing. --Laura Molzahn
