Halcyon Days (1991)
The strategically vital Nutmeg Capital of the World is under construction — by the Cubans. Democracy is in danger! Worse yet, the President's popularity is plummeting in the polls. Something must be done! A presidential adviser sees an opportunity to act. And operation "Urgent Fury" is set into motion.

This scathingly funny new play crosses Doonesbury with Dr. Strangelove for an hilarious look at politics in the media age. Loosely based on the strange but true tales of the U.S. invasion of Grenada, Halcyon Days takes a look back to that golden moment when America got "back in the saddle"— and almost fell off the horse.
