TheatreWorks Silicon Valley’s world premiere production of Suzanne Bradbeer’s high-stakes political drama “Confederates” is scheduled to run through Sunday at the Lucie Stern Theatre in Palo Alto.
Launching TheatreWorks’ 47th season, the play centers on a dad running for president, a daughter with her own agenda and reporters looking for a scoop to make their own careers. It explores the voracious nature of contemporary media during a national campaign.
