The Staged Reading Series: Farragut North on January 24
The third script in the 2011-2012 Staged Reading Series at Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette is Farragut North by Beau Willimon.
Neil Radtke directs the cast, which includes Zach Campbell, David Dietz, Bill Knapp, Craig Martin, Aaron Newton, Jessica Searight and Kristen Singleton.
Stephen Bellamy is a wunderkind press secretary who has built a career that men twice his age would envy. During a tight presidential primary race, Stephen's meteoric rise falls prey to the backroom politics of more seasoned operatives. Farragut North is a timely story about the lust for power and the costs one will endure to achieve it.
The staged reading of Farragut North will take place Tuesday, January 24 at 7:30 p.m. in the historic Monon Depot Theatre in downtown Lafayette. There will be a question-and-answer session between the audience, cast and director immediately following the reading. Audience members are encouraged to pay what they can for admission.
