Description

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.
