    By Maxwell Anderson
    Directed by Jonathan Berry

    A rare revival, in keeping with the Griffin’s work to explore lost plays like London Wall and Men Should Weep. Inspired by the infamous murder case of the 1920s when the Italian anarchists and immigrants, Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti, were arrested, convicted and electrocuted despite the insubstantial evidence against them. Anderson’s 1935 poetic verse play follows a young man’s quest to prove his father’s innocence years after he was executed for a murder he may not have committed Winner of the first New York Drama Critic’s Circle Award for Best Play.
