Theater Breaking Through Barriers celebrates its 40th anniversary season with the world premiere of Public Servant by Bekah Brunstetter (The Cake, cowriter and producer of NBC's Emmy-winning This Is Us, and the new TV series based on the musical Oklahoma!). In Public Servant, Ed has been newly elected as county commissioner. Ed is one of the good ones. With his daughter Hannah by his side, he is going to change the world — or at least his little corner of it. Meanwhile, all world-weary Miriam needs is to sell her late mother's house. Disillusioned with the system but desperate, she turns to Ed for help with what should be a simple request. But in the world of politics, is anything ever simple?
