The politically charged Helen Hayes-nominated company will present Politics of Passion: The Plays of Anthony Minghella and Howard Barker's No End of Blame in repertory at The Atlantic Stage 2, with previews beginning June 20 and playing through July 14. Three of Anthony Minghella's plays — Cigarettes and Chocolate, Hang Up and Truly, Madly, Deeply — will explore the issues of social and personal responsibilities, while Barker's No End of Blame: Scenes of Overcoming concerns the struggle of the artist in society to maintain his or her freedom of expression. The latter is explored through the experiences of a political cartoonist.
