Strzok-Page drama 'FBI Lovebirds' to be 1st play ever performed at CPAC

A stage play chronicling the anti-Trump text messages between disgraced FBI agent Peter Strzok and former FBI lawyer Lisa Page will take the stage at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) on Feb. 27, Fox News has learned.

The entire play, "FBI Lovebirds: UnderCovers," is derived, verbatim, from the text messages between Strzok and Page, as well as the pair’s answers to prolonged questioning in private congressional hearings.

It is the first time CPAC will have a play staged in its nearly 50 years as one of the largest annual conservative conferences. Labeled by Politico as “Hamilton for the MAGA crowd,” the FBI Lovebirds project was crowdfunded on Indiegogo and accessible at FBILovebirds.com.

The play is set to be featured on the CPAC main stage in National Harbor, Md., at 5 p.m. on the third day of the conference.

DC THEATER BACKS OUT OF HOLDING PLAY BASED ON FBI OFFICIALS' ANTI-TRUMP TEXTS, CITING 'VIOLENT THREATS'

“FBI Lovebirds: UnderCovers inspired President Trump in his Minnesota speech when he mocked Strzok and Page,” a press release explained, adding that the speech came one day after Trump tweeted a trailer for the play and was widely condemned by Democrats.

Actor Dean Cain, a frequent Fox News guest best known for playing Clark Kent/Superman in the TV series "Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman," plays Strzok and actress Kristy Swanson, best known for her portrayal of Buffy Summers in "Buffy the Vampire Slayer," will play Page. Swanson also starred in "Pretty in Pink," "Ferris Bueller’s Day Off" and "Big Daddy."

The play debuted at the amphitheater at the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center in Washington, D.C., on June 13. The performance was first scheduled to take place at another venue, but the theater backed out of the project two weeks before it was scheduled to take place, citing “violent threats.”

Cain said he was delighted  to play Peter Strzok as written by Peter Strzok."

"In his texts and congressional testimony, you learn a lot about Peter Strzok and what he finds important," Cain said.

“Acting in films and television for the last 40 years has been a great joy. I have wholeheartedly enjoyed the process of doing a play. Performing in front of a live audience has been an exciting new experience and challenge for me. Lisa Page was a bad actor in her role at the FBI. It is not easy having to play a bad actor,” Swanson said.

"This is the play that the D.C. establishment [doesn’t] want you to see because it reveals the truth,” the play’s conservative filmmaker Phelim McAleer told Fox News in September.

“Don’t forget this is completely verbatim -- using only the texts and congressional testimony of Strzok and Page. Though [through] these private communications we see that they said the ‘Russia collusion’ investigation was started as an ‘Insurance policy’ in case Trump gets elected," McAleer said.

He added: "I felt people need to see this and they need to know the truth -- that’s why the D.C. establishment tried to shut it down."

McAleer is also behind the movie "Gosnell," the story of abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell, described by ABC News as “America’s Biggest Serial Killer.”
