by Beth Kander

Opening October 14

With the scandal of a leaked video, Sam, the longtime beloved mayor of Anderson suddenly sees his seat in office threatened. Mischief ensues when the last person he ever expected, his wife Sophia, decides to run against him. It’s down and dirty and laugh-out-loud funny as husband and wife duke it out. And what happens when an unexpected third candidate enters the race? This fast-paced political comedy brings new meaning to the phrase “family politics.”

“Hilarity runs in the family – especially in the smart, witty, political family in Beth Kander’s clever new comedy Running Mates.” – Francine Thomas Reynolds, Artistic Director, New Stage Theatre
