About this show

In this Object Theatre-style production, CAMT explore the myths surrounding the Rosenbergs' purported betrayal of the atomic bomb secret to the Soviet Union. The play will show the whole first half of the 20th century, from the immigration of Ethel's and Julius' parents at the beginning of the century to the Great Depression and WWII, two monumental historic events that were both formative for the Rosenbergs. The three main stories will interweave the radical transformation of both main protagonists: Ethel, who dreams of Broadway stardom, and Julius, who studies the Scriptures fervently and "takes them literally," both becoming firm believers into Communist dogma, a transformation that will eventually cost them their lives.
