I Coulda Been a Kennedy at the Players Theatre

Rude Mechanicals Theater Company presents I Coulda Been a Kennedy, a comedy by Dennis Trainor, Jr, playing at the Players Theatre from 11 - 26 Aug 2006, as part of the New York International Fringe Festival.

I Coulda Been a Kennedy: Meet the O�Reilly family as they scheme to elevate their prodigal son to the highest office in the land. Vietnam, the Iran-Contra scandal, the war in Iraq, the Bush/Kerry election and cicadas conspire against them in this comic American epic.

Centers on Devin O'Reilly, the 'beneficiary' of his comically inept family�s grandiose scheme to forge him into a world leader. Weaving back and forth between 1970, 1987 and 2004, the comedy charts three generations of the O�Reilly family on its collision course with three generations of American history.

Directed by Ted Sluberski, I Coulda Been a Kennedy features Julie Fitzpatrick, Matthew Lawler, Helen Piper Coxe, Stephen Bradbury, Crystal Bock, Mimi Cozzens, Denise Lute and Kelsey Kurz.
