About Kings

Playwright Sarah Burgess (DRY POWDER) and Tony-winning director Thomas Kail (HAMILTON, TINY BEAUTIFUL THINGS, DRY POWDER) team up again for KINGS, a scathingly funny new play about the people at the heart of our democracy.

Kate is a whip-smart lobbyist who doesn’t waste her time on anyone who can’t get elected, stay elected and help her clients get what they want. Kate thinks Representative Sydney Millsap is a political neophyte whose staunch ideals are going to cost her a burgeoning political career.

But Representative Millsap and her high-minded principles turn out to be more resilient than Washington was expecting, and for the first time Kate is faced with a choice that might change everything for her: back the system, or back what she believes in?

The Public Theater

425 Lafayette Street, New York, NY 10003

Conceived nearly 60 years ago as one of the nation's first nonprofit theaters, The Public has served as a model, both in terms of mission and programming, for nonprofit theaters that have blossomed throughout the country since that time. The Public engages one of the largest and most diverse audiences in New York City in a variety of venues—including the Delacorte Theater; its landmark downtown home, which houses five theaters and Joe's Pub; and the Mobile Shakespeare Unit, which tours Shakespearean productions for underserved audiences throughout New York City's five boroughs.
