Based on the Pulitzer Prize winning novel. Set in Louisiana in the 1930’s, this powerful play examines the life of opportunist Willie Stark, a character based on Governor Huey Long, one of America’s most extraordinary politicians. The smart and manipulative Willie Stark is elected governor with the support of the lower social classes, tough-talking assistant Sadie Burke, newspaper reporter Jack Burden, Jack’s elegant fiancée Anne and her idealistic brother Dr. Adam Stanton. The play confronts the question, does absolute power corrupt absolutely?
