One-man comedy by thatrical performance activist Peterson Toscano to be presented on Oct. 27

Theatrical performance activist Peterson Toscano will present a comedic one-man show titled “The Re-Education of George W. Bush: No President Left Behind” at 7 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 27, at Tennessee Tech University’s Backdoor Playhouse.

Through a series of lively lessons and theatrical performances, Toscano — along with his cast of outrageously funny and thoughtful characters — playfully instructs President Bush and his audience about history, war, skin privilege, the environment, sexism, misreading the Bible, humanity, and more.

“The play does not offer a partisan message. I infuse it with humor, warmth and strong messages, not against the U.S. government or any political party, but messages addressed to our times and the many ways in which we each contribute to the problems that plague us today,” Toscano said.

“By the end of the play, the audience realizes that the message has very little to do with George W. Bush and very much to do with our roles as Americans who desire to make this world a better place,” he continued.

The performance is sponsored by TTU’s Lambda Association and the Cookeville Quakers.

Admission is $5 for students and $10 for the public.
