The Cuban Missile Crisis. The Civil Rights Movement. The Cold War. Some of the most influential periods in U.S. history, in an eerie resonance with the social and racial movements of today. During the volatile 1960s, one woman influenced American policy – and in turn, world events – through her friendships and proximity to power. 

Change Agent pulls back the curtain on an artist who fought long and hard to keep the humanity in politics and expand the consciousness of a nation. This provocative Power Play from Tony Award-nominated playwright and director Craig Lucas (An American in ParisThe Light in the Piazza) imagines how insider voices could have influenced major decisions that are still impacting our country today.

Prime Sponsorship for Change Agent is generously provided by Decker Anstrom and Sherry Hiemstra

Change Agent is the recipient of an Edgerton Foundation New Play Award.
