The L.A. Theatre Works Audio Docudrama Series
Pivotal Moments in American History
A unique play anthology featuring five gripping docudramas originally commissioned by L.A. Theatre Works that each explore pivotal moments in 20th century U.S history.
With ensemble casts and innovative staging potential these plays are perfect for theatre companies, schools and educational groups looking to stage familiar historical stories in new and original ways. Each play is accompanied by dramaturgical notes that help contextualize and analyze both the events themselves and the dramatic form in which they are presented.
The scripts included are:
The Great Tennessee Monkey Trial by Peter Goodchild
The Real Dr. Strangelove by Peter Goodchild
RFK: The Journey to Justice by Murray Horwitz and Jonathan Estrin
The Chicago Conspiracy Trial by Peter Goodchild
Top Secret: The Battle for the Pentagon Papers by Geoffrey Cowan and Leroy Aarons (Winner of the
