Do Good • Passion and the Public Servant

by Eric Samuelsen

(Professional, Amateur and Educational groups)

It’s what every American wants — to do some good to keep the ship of state from teetering over the edge of the world into oblivion. It’s a basic right given in the Constitution. A right to run for any office of the U. S. of A., even the Presidency, is handed to any U.S. born citizen of a certain or older. Connor Cooper, a resident since birth of New Hampshire, is going to do just that. He’s taking on the Presidency. Are we all a little naive? A little crazy? Why would any person want to take on the running of this country? This play may be set in the recent past, but it is more timely than ever with each new election year that passes. Can any candidate withstand the vetting of the press or political parties? Does it matter? It is only evident that they hold higher standards than they themselves are capable of reaching. Follow one man’s dream of serving the country and the people he loves in DO GOOD. It also becomes a comment on the political process, the voters and the press, who will accept anything except the thing that reminds them of themselves.
