DEVIL WITH THE BLUE DRESS

The Bunker Theatre and Desara Bosnja present

DEVIL WITH THE BLUE DRESS

by Kevin Armento
directed by Joshua McTaggart

Because this isn’t like those other ones. This gets called something different.
It gets called the Monica Lewinsky Scandal. You guys made sure everyone knew my name.

Exhuming the little blue dress that launched the biggest media circus of a generation, this barbed spin on a political drama conjures the five women who collided in what became known as The Lewinsky Scandal. Hillary Clinton and Monica Lewinsky find themselves centre stage in a theatrical feat that takes us through the corridors of power and behind the closed doors where the abuse of that power took place.

DEVIL WITH THE BLUE DRESS grapples with one of the most challenging questions in American political history: How do we respond to women seeking power, and the men who abuse it?

This world premiere, produced by The Bunker Theatre and Desara Bosnja, brings together American playwright Kevin Armento (Good Men Wanted, Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally) and The Bunker Theatre's Artistic Director Joshua McTaggart (Abigail, Marching On Together) in a collaboration that marks The Bunker's first American play to be staged in its space.
