Ex-pol’s dramatic move

Reich-penned political farce runs May 25-June 18

Robert Reich, former U.S. labor secretary in the Clinton administration, will make his professional bow as a playwright when his political satire “Public Exposure” has its world preem at Cape Cod’s Wellfleet Harbor Actors Theater next month.

Theater blurb describes the plot thus: “A savvy news reporter and an opportunistic plastic surgeon persuade a right-wing TV anchor to run for president — if only he’ll keep his pants on.”

The six-character farce, directed by theater a.d. Gil Hoppe, runs May 25-June 18. The work received a reading earlier this year by the theater, noted for such politically pointed works as Hoppe’s own “A New War.”

In 2002, Reich ran for the Democratic nomination for governor of Massachusetts. The author of nine books relating to politics and the economy, Reich’s 10th book, “Reason,” has just been published.
