Political drama 'Murph' at Boston Playwrights Theatre April 13 to 28

Dorchester writer Catherine O’Neill’s political drama, ‘Murph,’ starts next week at the Boston Playwrights Theatre.

Set in Boston on “the eve of the Clinton administration,” the play revolves around the fictional state Rep. Kevin Murphy and his acolytes. “These characters are composites of people I’ve been in political foxholes with,” O'Neill, who has worked on several local campaigns, told the Reporter last year.

The drama, directed by Brett Marks, stars James Bocock, John Geoffrion, Emily Kaye Lazarro and Robert Pittella.

The play runs from April 13 to April 28.
