Written By: Beau Willimon
Directed by: Molly Bourque
At the ripe-age of 25, Stephen Bellamy is at the height of his career. Charismatic, over-confident, and with an impeccable campaign record, Stephen is the envy of the political arena--and there is no stopping him. Now the press secretary in a heated presidential primary race, the White House is just within reach, until Stephen receives a phone call that changes everything. Soon the campaign, his career, and his sanity are put on the line, paving the way for irrational judgements and unpredictable outcomes. Packed with scandal, deceit, and backroom politicking, Farragut North is a thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat right til the very end. Behind the idealistic speeches and grand promises, this play unveils the true motives of not only our nation's prominent officials, but of mankind as well. Willimon's work is a timely story about human nature, our innate lust for power, and the lengths we are willing to go to attain it.
