5 Plays for the Price of 4

Fresh from New York, this incisive comedy takes an unflinching look at how things get done in Washington. When Sydney Millsap wins a seat in Congress, she’s determined to drain the swamp. Then she meets Kate, a whip-smart lobbyist who gets her clients what they want—whatever they want. When Kate helps Sydney try to unseat a powerful senator steeped in cronyism, the result is a “sleek, fast-paced, absorbing and very funny” (Vogue) exploration of money’s corrosive effect on politics.
