We’ve only done two performances of “November” so far, but there are quite a few great reviews already!
One member on Goldstar Events said, “A great play, well-acted… a fun evening… definitely recommend it, especially if you like politics!”
Another Goldstar member commented, “For the price of a movie ticket…. we enjoyed a fabulous production with acting from some very Talented actors!! Bravo! Thanks for all the laughs.”
And the blog “Washington Speaks” loved it, too! They said,
Dominion Stage’s November now playing at Arlington’s Theatre on the Run made me realize why I adore community theatre. It was thoroughly delightful (if you’ve got a hardened ear), funny, entertaining, and that’s why we go, isn’t it?
(Dave) Wright is absolutely marvelous and delivers a performance worthy of a Helen Hayes nomination. The other characters, particularly Aimee Meher-Homji, the “president’s” speechwriter, and Gary Cramer, a turkey dressed as a mouse who is a turkey lobbyist, are exceptional.

It’s November in a Presidential election year, and incumbent Charles Smith’s chances for reelection are looking grim. Approval ratings are down, his money’s running out, and nuclear war might be imminent. Though his staff has thrown in the towel and his wife has begun to prepare for her post-White House life, Chuck isn’t ready to give up just yet. Amidst the biggest fight of his political career, the President has to find time to pardon a couple of turkeys — saving them from the slaughter before Thanksgiving — and this simple PR event inspires Smith to risk it all in attempt to win back public support. With Mamet’s characteristic no-holds-barred style, November is a scathingly hilarious take on the state of America today and the lengths to which people will go to win.
