About this show

When the President of the United States nominates Dr. Lyssa Dent Hughes to the position of Surgeon General, the excavation of her past triggers a scandal that threatens her confirmation. As partisan politics play out, Lyssa's deep personal relationships and impressive career trajectory hang in the balance. Evan Cabnet directs Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award winner Wendy Wasserstein's prescient 1997 play about the cost one woman pays when she dares to have it all.
