COUNTERFEIT-BILL by Pat Rick
Sunday, February 22 at 6:30pm
State Theatre, 719 Congress Ave.
Bringing nonfiction to the stage, this one-man show, Counterfeit-Bill, takes his audience on an unexpected ride. The impersonator-humorist, portraying the 42nd President of the United States, tells a factual story about himself while delivering a history lesson about another presidential doppelgänger.
New to play-writing, Pat Rick produced an award-winning documentary, The Novitiate. Born from that film project, The Abbey& Me is a written account of invasion and seizure of a Midwest Catholic monastery, chronicling a 1975 Native American act of civil disobedience. His memoir is listed as notable in the 2013 Shelf Unbound Writing Competition for books. Now, and just in time, Pat is launching Counterfeit-Bill (http://www.hillaryshusband.com) to coincide with the 2016 political season. Appearing as Bill Clinton in person, on television and film, allowed Rick to acquire membership with The Screen Actors Guild and The American Federation of Television and Radio Artists. His character on stage proves “Truth is stranger than fiction.”
