The subject of this riveting and unusual drama is the infamous HUAC hearings in the 1950's, in which figures from the world of show business were subpoenaed to testify as to their loyalty as Americans and asked to name any and all communists or suspected communists in their industry. Assembled directly from the transcripts of the hearings, the play uses the actual words spoken by the likes of Lionel Stander, Abe Burrows, Lillian Hellman, Larry Parks, Elia Kazan, Jerome Robbins and Jose Ferrer. Equally revealing are the questions asked by the committee members.
