What people are saying about The Presidency of William Henry Harrison in Real Time:
“Hayet is really such a wonderful, clever, and enlightened comic writer. Here he takes a very real circumstance and gives a nearly-forgotten figure of U.S. history an opportunity to fight for his legacy, only to be thwarted by a millennial simply and understandably doing her job. What the employee hears is so incredibly to-the-point that everyone's misbehavior is ingeniously organic, impulsive, and hilariously tragic - all common, recurring qualities in the works of Steven Hayet.”
- Ricardo Soltero-Brown, Playwright
“The burden of insignificance is tough. It is even tougher when you're being judged by a snippy worker who seems to be an intern only interested in doing their job. The heart of this delightful comedy begs the question: how do we judge a person's significance, whether in office or in life?
Look out, James Garfield. ”
- Francis Boyle, Playwright
