Forever bound by a tragedy that none of them can forget, a group of strangers sits down together for an imagined meal that quickly evolves into a crime scene, a search for answers and, eventually, a requiem in Bully Dance. This drama from playwright David Valdes Greenwood weaves the survivors of a series of tragic shootings together with the raw memories of a troubled young man and his mother. The end result of this ambitious and powerful new play is a truly thought-provoking look at renewal and forgiveness. Learn More

I enjoyed it. I must admit I didn't catch every line. The actors spoke quite fast and were doing accents that weren't their own (though uniformly well).
I also didn't catch all the details of the story, but I did grasp the basic thrust of political maneuvering.
For the price, a great take-in!
As a grad of both Boston College and The Catholic University of America, it was good to see people from each place involved in this.

Murph is an exciting political drama, set in Boston on the eve of the Clinton administration. Representative Kevin Murphy and his tight-knit think tank (Katie and Gary) stumble into a political opportunity which could change their lives ... permanently. But before they can take this next step, they must tango with personal demons, prejudices, and Seth Smith, the nation’s top political strategist. Murph is a fast-paced, insider look at playing the political game and the sacrifices one must make along the way.
This play contains adult language.
Starring: James Bocock, John Geoffrion, Emily Kaye Lazzaro and Robert Pittella

About the Ticket Supplier: Argos Productions
At Argos, we believe that the strongest way for us to help playwrights grow as writers is through production of their work. Putting the characters in three dimensions is the way we like to work, so the focus of our efforts is to get the play up on its feet. However, we know that not every show is ready for the stage right away, so Argos Productions strives to provide insight, support, and potential development opportunities to all playwrights who come to us, whenever resources will allow.
