Swine Palace’s latest production in its current season dedicated to the Louisiana bicentennial is “All the King’s Men.” Based on Robert Penn Warren’s Pulitzer Prize-winning 1946 novel All the King’s Men, inspired by the life of Louisiana Governor Huey P. Long, the story portrays the dramatic political ascent of Willie Stark, a driven, self-proclaimed savior of the working man in the 1930s American South. Filled with unsettling insights underlined by the inspired music of Randy Newman, Stark’s story of charismatic idealism challenged by growing corruption and lust for power remains all too relevant in today’s political culture, and begs the question, “How far have we come?”

Written By: ADRIAN HALL, ADAPTED FROM THE NOVEL BY ROBERT PENN WARREN WITH ORIGINAL MUSIC BY RANDY NEWMAN

Directed By: GEORGE JUDY
