The Senator Wore Pantyhose

by Billy Van Zandt and Jane Milmore

Presented June 14-24, 2012, at the Norway Grange

Directed by Kenn Sawyer.

The failing presidential campaign of “Honest Gabe” Sandalson comes to the Sluckup Inn, Sluckup, PA, and Gabe’s manager, Tom, will do almost anything to keep his candidate in the public eye, including acquiring the endorsement of the leaders of the PMS (People’s Ministry of our Savior) Club, Jim and Fannie May Takker. When the Takkers insist on meeting MRS. Sandalson, who’s off delivering a women’s empowerment speech, Tom convinces Gabe to masquerade as his own wife. Meanwhile, bank robbers Paddy McMutton and Tony Panella return to the inn to collect the money that Paddy hid at the inn ten years ago (if he could only remember where!) Newsman Dan Blather senses a story and finds more than he expected. There are babies to be kissed, chili to be tasted, campaigning, romance, sex, felons—it’s politics as usual in Sluckup.
