"About the Book In 2008, in an alternate universe, a woman named Hillary Clinton is running for president in the United States. When she calls on her husband for support, Hillary gets far more than she bargained for. A provocative play from the award-winning playwright of A Doll's House, Part 2. Book Synopsis In 2008, in an alternate universe where anything can happen, a woman named Hillary Clinton is running for president in the United States of America. Struggling in Iowa against her more charismatic opponent (""The Other Guy""), she calls on her husband Bill for support. Bill offers her a deal, but when Hillary agrees to his help, she gets far more than she bargained for. Bucking the traditional trappings of the political play, Hnath takes a layered look at a political climate much like our own and deftly examines the sacrifices that must be made in order to obtain power. Review Quotes Hillary and Clinton is an audacious, whip-smart, highly entertaining piece of writing...has a political immediacy generally lacking in the theater, where plays get locked and set much too far in advance, and where some deep diving into the ideology or emotion of the moment thus bes all too rare.-- ""Chicago Tribune"" A Machiavellian meditation on the sacrifices politicians will make to reach office.-- ""Economist"" About the Author Lucas Hnath's plays include Hillary and Clinton, Red Speedo, The Christians, A Public Reading of an Unproduced Screenplay about the Death of Walt Disney, Isaac's Eye, Death Tax, and A Doll's House, Part 2. He is the recipient of numerous awards, including the Kesselring Prize, a Guggenheim Fellowship, the Whiting Award, an Outer Critics Circle Award, the Steinberg Playwright Award, an Edgerton Foundation New Play Award, an Obie Award, and the Windham-Campbell Prize for Drama.
