MuckrakersBack to Current Season
36 Linden Street
Pittsfield, MA 01201
A young female activist brings an older man—a famous political hacker/journalist—home to her Brooklyn apartment to spend the night. But as they start to expose each other’s secrets, personal and political desires collide, testing the limits of privacy in the modern world.
Read what the critics are saying about Muckrakers:
“a fervent and attention-getting play…ultra-relevant…acute, absorbing, topically vital theater” -Talkin Broadway
“…thoroughly enjoyable both as pure theatre, and as a springboard for debates about freedom and secrecy.” -BroadwayWorld
“A bold, ferociously argued two-character contemporary drama that is receiving its world premiere at Barrington Stage Company, Muckrakers couldn’t be more current or relevant.” -Albany Times Union
“carefully-crafted play …[Muckrakers] is not only ‘ripped from the headlines,’ you can actually hear the newspaper pages being torn as the play progresses…” -Springfield/Hartford Arts Examiner
“…two actors put themselves on the line and let loose on every level to bring their audience a bite of reality that surmounts both comedy and tragedy…That’s what Barrington Stage is doing right now. They’re making us sit up and take notice.” -Berkshire Bright Focus
“Sexy, thrilling… The casting couldn’t be better. Kahan James and Kate Rogal embody Stephen and Mira to perfection…another winner from Barrington Stage who seems to find an endless supply of works that are as intellectually stimulating as they are entertaining.” -Berkshire On Stage
