About this show

In 1947, legendary screenwriter Dalton Trumbo (Spartacus, Roman Holiday, Exodus) stood up to the House Un-American Activities Committee and was thrown into prison as one of the infamous Hollywood Ten. Through his brilliant and funny letters to friends, former friends, fronts and family emerges the story of a family's survival and one stubborn artist's quest to break the blacklist. Philadelphia Theatre Company presents this epistolary play, written by Dalton Trumbo's son, Christopher Trumbo. Bill Irwin & Bill Zielinski star in this production, directed by Peter Askin.
