The Trial

By Jack McLaughlin-Gray
Post-Reading Discussion Moderator: 
Resident Playwright, Mary Ruth Clarke

That four great nations, flushed with victory and stung with injury, stay the hand of vengeance and voluntarily submit their captive enemies to the judgment of the law is one of the most significant tributes that power has ever paid to reason. It happened in Nuremberg in 1945. The confrontation of three legendary individuals: a brilliant villain, a flawed hero, and the manipulative genius who navigated the currents between them.

About the First Draft Series

The First Draft Series is an exclusive series of Tuesday-night play readings for and by Network playwrights. These are private, salon-style readings in which playwrights perform the roles and then discuss the plays in a format similar to that used in the Saturday Series. The discussions are moderated by a Resident Playwright or member of the artistic staff.
