Very interesting and well done. The staging was amazing and the actors did well with their characters. Not an easy play to do convincingly.

Emily Mann, playwright

Elaine Vaan Hogue, director

A brilliant portrayal of the Dan White trial after the 1978 assassinations of Mayor George Moscone and gay city supervisor Harvey Milk of San Francisco. Renowned playwright Mann tells the story in a provocative and multilayered way, posing as many questions as answers about a tragic chapter in the city’s transition to its current political and social climate.
