Drama

Lawyer Abigail Gersten is brilliant, Jewish, and a First Amendment absolutist. Professor Bernard Cooper is courtly, polite and dedicated to convincing the world that the Holocaust was a Jewish hoax. When the government prosecutes him, he turns to Abby for help. Offended by censorship in any form, she takes the case, but gets quickly drawn into a moral quagmire. Opposing her is an idealistic prosecutor and a venerable Holocaust survivor who call her loyalties into question and make her confront the differences between what is legal and what is right. The conflict that ensues concerns issues of history, memory, free speech, and how the stories we tell about ourselves determine who we are.Denial received its premiere at the Long Wharf Theatre. "This drama is practically radioactive with relevance. The issues in this case are so loaded that they are guaranteed to push emotional buttons in anyone who sees [it]. And Mr. Sagal is to be admired for offering no easy answers. There is unquestionably the stuff of great drama in Denial." (New York Times) One int. set.
