Stage Left

Farragut North by Beau Willimon, Directed by Vance Smith

Stephen Bellamy is a wunderkind press secretary who has built a career that men twice his age envy.  During a tight presidential primary race, his meteoric rise falls prey to backroom politics.  A fast-paced drama about the lust for power and the costs one endures to achieve it, Farragut North was a hit on the coasts before its Chicago premiere.  The script was also the basis for the recent film The Ides of March.
 

PROGRAMMING:

Thursday 7/19:
