A country, a culture, falls into an easy narrative about a shared historical event and replays it until it becomes a rut. By now, we all know Watergate is a story about brave journalists and a corrupt presidency. Huge credit goes to Gangbusters Theatre Co. for breaking out of the narrative and mounting this workshop production of MEANTIME AT HOJO's about some of the people damaged most by Richard Nixon's paranoia: the Plumbers.

Was it that the characters, dialogue, and acting was so believable, that the use of light and music was subtle genius, or that the eight men onstage used the words as a greasy surfboard to ride a potent dark wave of 70's paranoia? Probably all of it. Regardless, call me a new Gangbusters devotee. Can't wait for the next installment!... full review
