About Kings:

Kings is a new play about money, politics and the state of the American republic. Kate is a whip-smart lobbyist who doesn't waste her time on anyone who can't get elected, stay elected and help her clients get what they want. Kate thinks Representative Sydney Millsap is a political neophyte whose staunch ideals are going to cost her a burgeoning political career. But Representative Millsap and her high-minded principles turn out to be more resilient than Washington was expecting, and for the first time Kate is faced with a choice that might change everything for her: back the system, or back what she believes in? Kings is a scathingly funny new play about the people at the heart of our democracy.

In New York, that twin fetish manifests itself through fashion, but in DC it is established through politics. Sarah Burgess’ captivating new play, Kings, while staged at NYC’s fabled Public Theater, is a deep dig into the financial... Read more
