A timely story about the lust for power and the costs one will endure to achieve it.

JCCC’s Academic Theatre students portray the story of Stephen Bellamy, a wunderkind press secretary who has built a career that men twice his age would envy. During a tight presidential primary race, Stephen’s meteoric rise falls prey to the backroom politics of more seasoned operatives. Farragut North is loosely based on former Gov. Howard Dean’s 2004 Democratic primary election campaign for U.S. President.

Free and open to the public.
