A More Perfect Union, according to press notes, "is a new play about two Law Clerks at the U.S. Supreme Court who have very different backgrounds and opposing political views. When they fall in love their relationship challenges their ethics and careers, as well as threatens to expose a dirty little secret about the Highest Court in our land."
The creative team includes Troy Hourie (sets), Theresa Squire (costumes), Tyler Micoleau (lights) and Ron Russell (sound). The production stage manager is Erin Koster.
