X (m), 65, former politician, now drunken Zen master; N (m), 45, lifetime friend of X and M, ambitious politician; C (m), 22, neophyte member of the Black and White Party; M (f), 35, wife of X, an artist.
“A foreign Zen master creates a fake political party along with his wife and best friend to see how far his little "bar joke" can go. The party actually starts to gain devout followers and actual power, and becomes a fascist movement. How can the Zen master beat his own shortcomings, his best friend's passion for his much younger wife, and destroy his out-of-control creation? With Zen, of course!
• “Extras are other party members. Split stage set—one half party headquarters, the other living quarters.
• "Premiered in Bemidji, Minnesota, U.S.A., in 1998.”
betrayal, chicanery, deceit, politics, revenge, Zen.
