Rick Cleveland cut his teeth as a playwright working in Chicago – he went on to big things, like winning an Emmy for his writing on the political drama, The West Wing.  Later it was the TV series Six Feet Under, and more recently, the new political drama House of Cards.

Despite his success on the small screen, Cleveland’s latest work combines his interest in Presidential politics with his love for writing for the stage.
