Beau Willimon is the writer-producer of the Netflix mega-hit House of Cards, and his play Farragut North won rave reviews before hitting the screen as the Oscar-nominated The Ides of March. Willimon sets his new play in the Capitol Hill section of Washington, D.C., where powerful friends are the only kind worth having. This contemporary slant on a scandalous French comedy about bad conduct in high places is swift, savvy and impossible to resist. Tom is a lawyer in the private sector, with his sights on a government job. Chloe is beautiful, bright and bored. But she has a passionate side, and it has nothing to do with her love affairs. How far will they go to achieve political stardom?
