A fast-paced political satire, The Outsider has been performed in regional theatres throughout the country.

Synopsis: Ned Newley doesn't even want to be governor. He's terrified of public speaking; his poll numbers are impressively bad. To his ever-supportive Chief of Staff, Ned seems destined to fail. But political consultant Arthur Vance sees things differently: Ned might be the worst candidate to ever run for office. Unless the public is looking for... the worst candidate to ever run for office. A timely and hilarious comedy that skewers politics and celebrates democracy.

  

AVAILABLE ROLES

 

PAIGE CALDWELL, female, 19-40. A professional pollster. A smart, confident woman with a professional’s view of politics: she sees it as a series of contests to be won.

DAVE RILEY, male, 30s to 50s. The Chief of Staff to the new Governor. Smart, honest, and endearingly earnest.

LOUISE PEAKES, female, 30s to 50s. A temporary employee hired as the Governor's executive assistant. Personable, likable, friendly, impressively confident, and entirely inept. A natural politician.

NED NEWLEY, male, 50s/60s. The new Governor. A person of impressive ability, but a complete lack of confidence. Prone to panic attacks at the worst times.

ARTHUR VANCE, male, 50s/60s. One of the most experienced and successful political consultants in the country. His overbearing personality, and confidence in his own opinions over the opinions of others, should make him dislikable, but his ego is more than tempered by the joy he brings into the room. 

RACHEL PARSONS, female, 20-40 A TV reporter. She has the looks to be an on-air correspondent— though, if television had never been invented, she still would have been a journalist. Straight-forward and honest, and inquisitive by nature.  She is likable, smart and funny.

A. C. PETERSEN, male, 30s to 50s. A TV cameraman. A working man, and—for most people—the guy you didn't notice was there. Which is fine with A. C.; he has a low tolerance for idiocy, and would rather not interact with anyone. His near-silence doesn't make him seem unfriendly, just a bit of a mystery.
