WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Legendary screenwriter Dalton Trumbo (Spartacus, Roman Holiday, Exodus) was at the top of his game when, in 1947, he stood up to the House Un-American Activities Committee and was thrown into prison as one of the infamous Hollywood Ten. Though vilified, exiled, and "broke as a bankrupt's bastard," Trumbo refused to be silenced. Trumbo, a new theatre piece by his son Christopher Trumbo, uses his brilliant and funny letters to friends, former friends, fronts, and family to tell the story of a family's survival and one stubborn artist's quest to break the blacklist. Gordon MacDonald is featured as Narrator/Christopher Trumbo, with a rotating cast of actors starring in the role of Dalton Trumbo.

A portion of the ticket proceeds goes to support the efforts of People for the American Way.
