Play Description

As worded in of the 2003 Samuel French, Inc. Basic Catalogue of Plays and Musicals:

This humor-filled tale of political corruption, ingratitude and revenge concerns an idealistic young Washington attorney who persuades her former law professor, a man of lofty rhetoric, to run for Congress. Ideals shrivel in the Washington air as the professor is swept into an insider’s circle that includes a leering, power-drunk senator and a slinky Southern power broker. When the heroine is snubbed by the politically powerful at a fancy restaurant, her hurt feelings precipitate an all-out war. She promotes a sex scandal that unexpectedly makes her the darling of the religious right.
