According to press materials, the show is set in the 60's and loosely based on '"The Manchurian Candidate," in which the next presidential candidate dies having sexual intercourse with his secretary, whose widow Violet then makes it her mission in life to get her wayward son (Cal) into the White House at any cost. The production is directed and staged by Michael Strassen (whose previous Union Theatre credits include Assassins, Godspell and The Baker's Wife), with musical direction by Simon Lambert. It is produced by Sasha Regan, with Paul Callen as assocaite producer.
The cast is led by Louis Maskell as Cal (seen in the Union production of Iolanthe at Wilton's Music Hall), Liz May Brice as Violet (TV's "Bad Girls") and Miles Western as Grahame, Cal's uncle (Olivier Award winner for playing Miss West Coast in Pageant). Also in the cast are Eliza Anderson, Daryl Armstrong, Natalie Green, Leon Kay, Natalie Lipin, Gary Mitchinson, Will Pearce, Donovan Preston, Heather Scott-Martin and Daisy Tonge.
