About Kings

New member of congress, Sydney Millsap, sees how money corrupts politics, and she’s on a mission to do something about it. Just imagine how a career senator and two ambitious lobbyists react to her efforts! "Kings" is a whip-smart political satire that will inspire you to change the system. And vote.

Sarah Burgess’ dark comedy Kings makes a snappy addition to the growing canon of fiction that pulls back the curtain on how the sausage gets stuffed in Washington, D.C.
Metro Weekly
It’s an absorbing, utterly credible procedural about how the opaque funding of our political campaigns inevitably grinds even the shrewdest and/or most honorable of candidates into mediocrities.
Washington City Paper
Playwright Sarah Burgess, an Alexandria native, has a knack for wittily summarizing the most off-putting aspects of public discourse.
