"One of America's funniest and most penetrating modern satirists...Abrogate is an examination of the many established rights eroded or abrogated under the Bush administration. It is set...at a time described as inevitable. [Abrogate] deals head on with the Iraq war, its abuses and its consequences, but Gelbart avoids the pitfalls of agitprop and soapbox theatre to make his points through comedy, often outrageous and surreal." - BBC Radio

TARGET AUDIENCE

Appropriate for all audiences

This political comedy from acclaimed film, theatre, and television legend Larry Gelbart examines the long-term consequences of the Bush-era White House through an imaginary hearing investigating the abrogation of human rights under the Bush regime. 

Hillary Clinton is now president and, in an attempt to sift through the debris of the post-Bush regime, holds a congressional meeting to explore how the atrocities during the previous administration could have possibly happened. As the hearing progresses, some shocking truths about the infamous conservative leaders are revealed.
