The play focuses on an office that works on getting political candidates elected. While everyone working in the office is politically savvy, most are still relatively new in this profession and are filled with ideals. But when some things start going wrong, Bobby (Don Speziale), the owner of the business, starts bending the rules little by little to achieve his ends. Though he feels his ends are for the greater good and worth minor bends in the rules, the straight and narrow line that servant’s of the people are at least suppose to follow becomes so distorted that some of his best employees have to quit their jobs to preserve their integrity.
Indeed, it is individual integrity that is the most pervading theme in this fine production. We watch those that lose it grow more powerful in a worldly sense, but we can’t help question: “At what cost?” And while those that maintain their integrity lose their jobs and all sense of worldly power, we begin to wonder, in the Biblical sense of “the last shall be first and the first shall be last,” who really is the next in line?
