Veteran FBI agent Howard Ballantine and new recruit Daniel McClure are assigned a job of critical importance to J. Edgar Hoover and the White house: get politically outspoken John Lennon out of the country before Richard Nixon runs for reelection in 1972, an election in which eighteen-year-olds can vote for the first time. Based on actual FBI documents declassified through the Freedom of Information Act and filled with humor and heartbreak, Ears on a Beatle explores the personal relationship between the two agents in light of the changing social climate from the early seventies until Lennon's death in 1981. Set in a time when the country was sharply divided by an unpopular war, lies flowed from the White House and individual liberties were threatened in the name of national security, this play is as contemporary as today's headlines.
