July 31 - August 10 by Garson Kanin “Don’t knock yourself out. You got a lot of surprises coming.” This sharp and snappy screwball comedy premiered in 1946 but it’s as fresh as today’s headlines! Harry Brock, a junkyard businessman with a crude way of talking and a huge but fragile ego arrives in Washington, convinced he can bully and buy a senator or two. The monkey wrench in his schemes is Billie Dawn, his seemingly dim-witted ex-showgirl mistress. When Brock hires a reporter to tutor Billie to make her more acceptable to the Beltway crowd, she rapidly comes into her own as a force to be reckoned with! This delicious comedy hilariously skewers Washington corruption and praises an educated electorate!
