The True

Friday, April 01, 2022 to Sunday, April 24, 2022
Sharr White
Age 5+ with a recommendation of 15+ for THE TRUE
120+ minutes with one 15 minute intermission


Albany, buckle up for Sharr White’s political drama about the blunt, profane, decades-long defender of Albany’s Democratic Party machine Dorothea “Polly” Noonan. Politics is personal for Noonan, especially now that her hero, “mayor for life” Erastus Corning II, is battling for party control while at the same time fighting the fiercest primary challenge of his life. The True is an intimate portrait of the bounds of love, loyalty and female power in the male-dominated world of 1977 patronage politics.  

Fresh off a 2018 Off-Broadway debut, theREP will be bringing this play back to its roots in Albany, NY!
