How did Nancy Pelosi become the first female Speaker of the House – and perhaps more importantly, how has she managed to stay there? First elected to Congress in 1987, Speaker Pelosi is a woman about whom everyone has an opinion, and yet who almost no one truly knows. In the play, she recounts her personal story and political journey while trying to balance the forces of extreme left and extreme right, using all of her power and talents to preserve that rarest of rare birds in D.C. of this moment – consensus. That is, until her brand of consensus fades into the rear-view mirror. This up-to-the-minute, galvanizing play is not just about Madame Speaker herself, but about the convulsive political climate that currently permeates the United States. Told with wit, irony, emotion and leavening doses of humor, “The Adult in the Room” is no mere history lesson, but a reflection on where we are, and how we got here.

Starring acclaimed Broadway, television and film actress Orlagh Cassidy. Directed by Heather Arnson and Conor Bagley, the play is produced by Tony/Emmy/Olivier Award-winning producer Jim Kierstead (“Kinky Boots,” “Pippin,” “Hadestown”) Emmy Award-winning producer Linda Karn (“Matt Shepard is a Friend of Mine”) and Broadway producer William Fernandez (“The Inheritance,” “The Great Comet”).
