This dramatic play was created from an edited transcript of the trial of the Rev. Philip and Daniel Berrigan and their seven confederates who in 1968 entered a Selective Service office, removed records, and burned them in a parking lot to protest the war in Vietnam and the horrors of napalm bombings.
"A positively riveting play, even though the verdict is a matter of history. The eloquence of the defendants, the cold duty of the prosecution, the dry, puzzled compassion of the far from unsympathetic judge, are woven by Father Berrigan into a theatro political account of this political act...[that is] almost an instant replay of a politically theatrical gesture." - The New York Times
"Eloquent, powerful and moving. Artistic and jolting theatre." -CBS TV
