Seems like only yesterday that Dubya was out of the fire and into the coals but he's been out of office since 2008!
Now we have Donald Trump threatening Dubya's legacy as the most baffling president of all time. What will happen?

Description & Venue Requirements
The Ballad of The Bush Leagues is a satirical epic performed by two actors against a backdrop of surprising White House photos.
A work-in-progress since George W. Bush's 2001 inauguration, The Ballad takes its audience on a satiric adventure through its own recent past, a past that often seems so long ago.
This illusion of fast-fleeting history is both sustained and confronted by the Narrator (Est Nyboer) who struggles to maintain a positve outlook on his president. The President (Aaron T. Smith) clears up any ambiguities with his straight-talkin' wisdom.
Somewhere between Homer and Dr. Seuss, The Ballad's entertaining combination of journalistic immediacy and poetic density leaves audiences wondering how so much could have happened so quickly.
Runtime is approximately 1 hour per term. No intermission.
Est Nyboer —The Narrator
Aaron T. Smith—Dubya
