By Beau Willimon
Directed by Lewis Hauser
A contemporary political drama of arrogance and lust for power vis-à-vis the Fourth Estate. Loosely based on former Governor Howard Dean's 2004 Democratic primary election campaign for U.S. President, the original script won the 2005 Dayton Playhouse FutureFest (a festival of new plays), where it was first produced, to rave reviews by critics and a warm response from audiences. It is a classic tale about the quest for power and the costs one will endure to achieve it.
