About This Show

This ground-breaking play by Emily Mann marks a transformational moment in our history. Crafted entirely from trial transcripts, reportage, interviews with politicians, police, family members and every-day people effected by the events, EXECUTION OF JUSTICE explores the 1979 murder trial of Dan White and the traumatic aftermath of the assassination of San Francisco mayor George Moscone and City Supervisor Harvey Milk (the first openly gay elected official in the history of California).

This skillful revival directed by Mark Armstrong confronts ongoing issues of racism, homophobia, sexism, and truthtelling in the lives of ordinary humans, chronicling the political violence that divided a city, and continues to divide America – as well as the possibilities of change.

Michael Esper, Pascale Armand, Frank Wood, AnnaSophia Robb, Kevin R. Free, Mia Katigbak, Kate Hamill, Lou Liberatore, Thom Sesma, Andrew Hovelson, Daniel K. Isaac, Jordan Lage, Joseph W. Rodriguez
