It’s January in Des Moines, Iowa, 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. Named for the Metro Station that is the center of the Washington, D.C. lobbyist district, FARRAGUT NORTH is opening in October 2011 as a major motion picture, THE IDES OF MARCH, starting George Clooney, Ryan Gosling, Paul Giamatti, Marisa Tomei, Evan Rachel Wood, and Philip Seymour Hoffman.
“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. "... [A] supremely entertaining dissection of the machinations behind getting elected." —Associated Press. ". . . 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.
