Tail! Spin!

“We need more Rachel Dratch in our lives.”
- The New York Times
“Rachel Dratch reminds us why she’s such an undersung comic treasure.”
- The New York Times
Politics is dirty – but politicians are dirtier. The truth is laid hysterically bare in Tail! Spin!, a wildly inventive new comedy drawn verbatim from the leaked e-mails, raunchy texts and tell-tale tweets that brought down politicians Anthony (“I Was Hacked”) Weiner, Mark (“Appalachian Trail”) Sanford, Larry (“Wide Stance”) Craig, and Mark (“Underage Page”) Foley.

In the three sold-out London runs since it’s Royal Court premiere, the piece has been surrounded by both controversy and impassioned proponents, and has raised an unprecedented call to support political work and the difficult discourse it creates.
