From the creator of the hit series, House of Cards, comes this taut, plot-twisting play, brimming with the political and personal intrigue of a campaign team during a presidential primary race. At its center is Stephen Bellamy, 25, a charismatic, wunderkind press secretary who has built a career that men twice his age would envy. When he makes an impulsive decision to reach for more, his youthful ambition collides with the guile of seasoned veterans—with reverberating consequences for all.
Very adult language and situations.

“FARRAGUT NORTH will satisfy any audiences appetite for political intrigue..." —Ridgefield Press
"In this year of high political stakes, this is a fitting piece. Catch it while you can" —Newtown Bee
"...a powerful and timely play about the inner workings of presidential campaign." —I On The Valley
“FARRAGUT NORTH is juicy entertainment. [A] whip-smart insider look at the soul-sucking world of political campaigns…the play’s taut scenes crackle with pithy talk, gripping plot turns and intriguing revelations.” —Variety
“You will find yourself drawn into FARRAGUT NORTH, Beau Willimon’s supremely entertaining dissection of the machinations behind getting elected.” —Associated Press
“Step into the world of FARRAGUT NORTH. Beau Willimon’s juicy and timely drama is a potent reminder that, like Hollywood, politics is a high-stakes game where one wrong liaison can finish you off.” —NY Daily News
“Willimon writes freshly about ravenous political appetites. He’s attuned to the circuitry of political careerists, to the ego-stroking access they seek and the particular ways they seek it.” —Washington Post
“A morality tale about an attractively malign central character, FARRAGUT NORTH is as much about what drives the merciless pursuit of victory as it is about the way political machinations have eclipsed what’s really at stake in our elections. As a character study of a mover-and- shaker living a life of wall-to- wall work—with scheduled barroom binges and hotel room dalliances—the play has a fresh accuracy that suggests the playwright, who worked on the campaigns of Charles E. Schumer, Hillary Clinton, and Vermont Governor, Howard Dean, was taking juicy notes on the campaign trail.” —Los Angeles Times
