I don’t have guns because the Second Amendment says I can have guns. I have guns becuase the guy next to me has guns.  – Waiting for Obama


Waiting for Obama
is the story of a Colorado family that is convinced the President is coming for their guns … and they may be right. The play, written by longtime Denver arts journalist John Moore was an official selection to the 2016 New York International Fringe Festival.

The work was developed in Denver, CO at the Buntport Theatre with a series of closed and open rehearsals before receiving its premiere at the New York International Fringe Festival.
The cast included Chris Kendall, Luke Sorge, Leslie O’Carroll, Laurence Curry, Jessica Robblee, Amelia Corrada and Brett Aune. The creative team included Steven J. Deidel, Stevie Caldarola, Jonas Whalen, and Austin Allen.
