Execution of Justice

This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

A cast of 20 performs Emily Mann's award-winning 1982 verbatim play - a panoramic view of a time of upheaval and change, told in words taken from trial transcripts, interviews, reportage and the street.

27th November, 1978 Dan White shoots dead Harvey Milk, the first openly gay American to hold elected office and George Moscone, Mayor of San Francisco.

Moving in and out of the courtroom and backwards and forwards in time, Execution of Justice captures a divided city in crisis and the impact of loss.

The play was commissioned by San Francisco's Eureka Theatre in 1982, premiered at the Actors' Theatre of Louisville in 1984 and presented on Broadway in 1986.
