Is America ready for the first openly gay President? Is it ready for his partner? Commander centers on the complicated relationship between Ned Worley, a former college professor-turned-unlikely Governor of Rhode Island, and his possibly alcoholic partner, Richard. In this darkly comic play, an ambitious politician battles public doubts, personal demons and his own partner in a troubled quest to be President.
