The riveting true story of the unlikely activists that set the nation ablaze.

Running time is 85 min no intermission.

It is 1968 and the war is raging in Vietnam. A draft card is viewed by many as a death certificate. In the midst of a divided country, with corrosive mistrust in government and authority, nine would-be bystanders in Catonsville, Maryland decide that complacency is complicity — it is time for action. Their single act of conscience to halt the draft awakens a national resistance.

Transport Group Artistic Director Jack Cummings III has radically re-imagined this provocative piece of theatre created from the actual court transcripts of the Catonsville Nine trial.

Actors David Huynh, Mia Katigback and Eunice Wong play over a dozen roles as they excavate the stories and inspiration behind these history-making activists.

Presented in partnership with the National Asian American Theatre Company (NAATCO).

The Trial of the Catonsville Nine is produced by special arrangement with The Daniel Berrigan Literary Trust, Catalyst Literary Management and Phil Sandhaus.
