Top Secret: The Battle for the Pentagon Papers
Tickets and Information
WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
It's 1971 and the nation is at war. The intractable conflict escalates in Vietnam while here at home the battle for public opinion rages. A federal court blocks The New York Times from publishing the top-secret history of U.S. involvement in Vietnam. Washington Post publisher Katharine Graham has a single day to decide whether to print these documents, which quickly became known as the Pentagon Papers. When the Nixon administration closes in and charges treason, the fight for a free press explodes. Geoffrey Cowan and Leroy Aaron's suspenseful Top Secret: The Battle for the Pentagon Papers animates the frontline clash between the government's need for secrecy and the public's right to know. Featuring a cast of eleven representing the real life characters at the center of this historic event--from Washington Post editor Ben Bradlee to Post publisher Katharine Graham to President Richard Nixon--this is a true story about one of the great "stand up and cheer" moments in American journalism.
