Empires Fall

October 18 - 27

A world premiere of a new play by the only press secretary in United States history to be appointed by two Presidents, Marlin Fitzwater. Empires Fall is about the relationship of President George H.W. Bush and USSR General Secretary Mikhail Gorbachev in the two years between the fall of the Berlin Wall and the dissolution of the Soviet Union. Both men attempt to bring an end to the cold war in a fashion that, while being in the best interest of their country, also protects the world. More relevant than ever, Empires Fall is a theatrical event not to be missed.
