Event description: 

About Scenes from Court Life, or the whipping boy and his prince: History, remixed. In 17th-century Great Britain, the Stuarts—Charles I and Charles II—defend their divine rights, with the help of a whipping boy. In our own time, Jeb and George W. Bush play hardball—both politics and tennis—battling for power, as siblings and statesmen. By turns intimate and epic, Sarah Ruhl’s astonishing new play reveals the cost of dynastic privilege.

Scenes from Court Life is the recipient of a 2016 Edgerton Foundation New American Plays Award.
