Scapegoat
Ran April 13, 2017 - May 07, 2017

Over two generations the Porters have cultivated their legacy as “The New Roosevelts.” As a Religious Freedom bill bullies its way through Congress, their political dynasty is suddenly threatened when a story leaks claiming the family patriarch is a Satanist. With his eyes set on a future nomination to the Supreme Court, Anse Porter is forced to choose between having the life he’s worked for, and sacrificing all for the people he serves. Loyalties to family, faith, country and self are tested in this twisted story of The Porter Family as they struggle through the wreckage of America’s crumbling wall between church and state.

Press
Chicago Reader
Highly Recommended! "This parody of our political system sadly doesn't seem very farfetched, and the dark humor is bolstered by the cast's not playing it for laughs."

NewCity Recommended! "Politically and emotionally precise...with fine performances"
Picture This Post
"This intimate look at a big picture topic both entertains and provokes thought....McNamara’s intense writing is complemented by Kristina Valada-Viars’ direction. The actors work well together as an ensemble and... succeed at the underlying loathing but polite face of interacting with those of opposing viewpoints."
