A testament to an indomitable spirit.
By Joe Gilford
Directed by Giovanna Sardelli
Drama Desk Award Best Play Nominee
With the 1950s Red Scare in full swing, the House Un-American Activities Committee attacks
“subversion” in the arts. When a romance blossoms between a rising comic and a firebrand actress,
they face being blacklisted along with their friends and fellow artists. Will they lose their careers or
betray each other and be branded forever as “finks”? Based on the true story of comedian/actor
Jack Gilford, this stunning comic drama is written by his son.
Contains mature language.
