Playmakers, Inc. presents Robert Penn Warren’s All the King's Men, directed by Ken Richard, March 2-18, 2018.
Discovering that he is being used by a cynical machine, Governor Willie Stark adopts methods that allow him to control the state. By resorting to corrupt methods, he accomplishes things for the people that were only abstract ideals when he was campaigning honestly. As a portrait of politics, this is effective and provocative. Robert Penn Warren’s version of the widely known work, which, as a novel, was the recipient of the Pulitzer Prize, had a highly successful Off-Broadway run during the 1959 season.
Performances are 8pm Fridays and Saturdays and 2pm Sundays (no show March 4). Tickets are $20 for adults, $10 for students.
