Unit Set/Multiple Settings

Picture this: America in the grip of Japan, an assassination plot against the president, a weak vice-president, the threat of nuclear war in the Persian Gulf, espionage, intrigue, incest, and the likelihood of a right wing takeover of the United States. Sound familiar? Lahr brings Richard Condon's celebrated novel into the present to build an evening of suspense and drama far more exciting than any election night. "John Lahr's ingenious updating substitutes Japan-bashing for the red-baiting of Richard Condon's original, producing a wonderfully preposterous scenario involving a brain-washed killer and a plot to make Tokyo dependent on US oil by nuking the Gulf." —Times of London. "…a slick adaptation by John Lahr." —The Guardian (UK).
