"A smart, crisp comedy about the goings-on behind the scenes in a political campaign…Reddin scores high marks.”" —Pittsburgh Post Gazette. "A smart, sassy skewering of the back-room machinations of presidential politics, where personal rivalries and agendas can derail the larger mission…cynical humor that recognizes that when winning is the sole concern, no one is above a little double dealing, skullduggery and betrayal." —Pittsburgh Tribune. "THE MISSIONARY POSITION makes you laugh again and again, because it's really really funny. It's not mean-spirited and it's not preachy…smart, fresh humor…a highly recommended diversion." —Talkin' Broadway.

THE STORY: Pragmatism and piety collide in this political comedy set during a Presidential primary season. The action takes place in a series of banal hotel rooms in various cities, where Roger, an operative of a Christian organization, does battle with Neil, a cynical campaign manager, for the soul of an unseen presidential front-runner. In the mix is Julie, a wealthy donor to the campaign who dreams of running for office herself. A play where conflicts of ideals versus pragmatism do battle, and the best man does not win.
