Hardball is a complex exploration of modern-day news and commentary and the maneuverings of those who provide it. In this timely and provocative play, Stewart turns her razor-sharp pen to the rise of opinion journalism in the 24-hour cable news landscape.

Is it possible to deliver news without an angle? Is journalism as we once knew it dead? When Washington Post reporter Virginia is fired for openly displaying her politics in the office, she sets off on a crusade to prove that bias in media is inevitable. As she fights to make her voice heard, she embarks on a very public crash course in the rules of the news commentary game. In an age where some media outlets claim to be “fair and balanced,” while others unapologetically “lean forward,” this timely piece will leave you questioning the power of truth in journalism.
