A young activist hosts a famous political journalist/hacker in her apartment. What follows is an evening full of rich debate over who has the right to information, how much the public needs to know, and the consequences of power. Dynamics shift when secrets are revealed and each discovers that there is always a price to pay for privacy. In the wake of controversy surrounding WikiLeaks and NSA whistle-blower Edward Snowden, The Boston Globe calls MUCKRAKERS “an absorbing play that’s ripped from the headlines.”
For mature audiences. Contains nudity, sexual situations, and adult language.
Excerpt from the Boston Globe’s review:
“The script calls for a considerable degree of nudity, some but not all dimly lit, and New Rep bravely obliges.”
