The Outsider, the political farce from 2019 Helpmann Award nominee Paul Slade Smith, follows Ned Newley, who doesn’t even want to be Governor. He’s terrified of public speaking; his poll numbers are impressively bad. To his ever-supportive Chief of Staff, Ned seems destined to fail. But political consultant Arthur Vance sees things differently: Ned might be the worst candidate to ever run for office.
Unless the public is looking for… the worst candidate to ever run for office.
