Synopsis

President Arnot Thinkinear is a self-serving egomaniac who has followed the economic plan of a billionaire madman and the result is that the country is in a financial shambles just when he’s trying to get elected for a second term.

Suddenly, without any warning, a large UFO lands on the Mall right near The White House.  Are they friendly or here to invade our planet?  Turns out they need our help.

Ironically, their space craft emits a substance that is initially thought of as a possible contaminant, but later found out to be platinum.

Eureka!  A solution to correct the economy.  Although, President Thinkinear can’t resist trying to siphon off some for himself and his Chief of Staff, Powers Wayning.

They are caught red handed by General George S. Trojan and exposed by Chase Storyman and Lilac Hellowitz of YMI News.

Meanwhile, General Trojan becomes fast friends with the three Aliens who realize that he is in love with the President’s Secretary, Lola Clematis, and they can’t resist trying to help.  After all… Love IS universal… Isn’t it?

In the end, in order to save the country, General Trojan retires from the Army to answer his country’s call to run for President.

Once in the Oval Office, his new Secretary forms an unusual bond with a very excitable representative from the UN and the laughs continue.

The play is positively wacky and promises no end of laughter.  It ends with Chase Storyman and Lilac Hellowitz being invited to visit the planet “Quirdmut” along with a Diplomatic Party from Washington DC., Consisting of Senators Les Manley and Mona Lotte.

This visit is recorded on an audio CD and made available for purchase on the way out of the theatre so that the audience can hear the result of the trip. (A great ancillary to make additional money for the Theatre.)
