Politically Intriguing 'Farragut North' Opening In PottstownWorthy of the current political season, Tri-PAC representative Betsy Chapman says, the play’s plot is filled with backroom politics:

“It’s January in Des Moines IA, during a tight primary race. Wunderkind Stephen Bellamy is young, aggressive, talented, and tremendously successful as press secretary for Governor Morris in his bid to run for President. Thrown into the scheming backroom politics of more seasoned operatives, Stephen struggles between the lust for power and loyalty to the cause.”

Farragut North is named for the Metro Station that is the center of the Washington DC lobbyist district. The Tri-PAC production stars features a cast including Tyler Horn, Steve Reazor, Katherine Leary, Phil Ballantine, Ken Mumma, Carly Fried, Porter Eidam, and Philip Seader.
