A Political Tale of Power, Lust & Loyality.
Stephen is a wunderkind press secretary who has built a career that men twice his age would envy. During a tight presidential primary race, however, Stephen's meteoric rise falls prey to the backroom politics of more seasoned operatives, and his one night stand with a teenage staffer proves to be more complicated than casual. Farragut North is a classic tale of hubris set against a contemporary landscape – about the lust for power and the costs one will endure to achieve it. The World Premiere of Farragut North is a classic tale set against a contemporary landscape starring Dan Bittner (The Vertical Hour), Kate Blumberg (Atlantic’s Celebration and The Room), Tony Award winner John Gallagher, Jr. (Spring Awakening), Golden Globe Award nominee Chris Noth ("Sex and the City"), Otto Sanchez (HBO’s "Oz"), Olivia Thirlby (Juno) and Isiah Whitlock, Jr. (HBO’s "The Wire").
More than a glimpse into the world of politics, Farragut North is an intriguing tale about loyalty, an obsessive lust for power, and the costs one will endure to achieve it as seen through the eyes of outstanding young playwright Beau Willimon and Tony Award winning director Doug Hughes.
