Blessings of Peace! As Daniel Berrigan's Literary Executor, I'm passing on this special invitation from the Transport Group to attend the Off-Broadway Performance of Dan's classic anti-war play, The Trial of the Catonsville Nine. Please come! Thanks.
Greetings from Transport Group!
We are thrilled to be producing Daniel Berrigan's The Trial of the Catonsville Nine. This beautiful story of Vietnam War resistance is playing off-Broadway at the Abrons Arts Center in New York City this winter from January 16th - February 23rd.
The Trial of the Catonsville Nine features three extraordinary Asian actors in a reimagine production inspired by Berrigan's words -
"And it may be that the thousands of American and Vietnamese ghosts created by this war can best be spoken for by three small children who crouched in a Hanoi air raid shelter, before the compassionate eyes of an American priest. He saw in these children, as many of us saw in Anne Frank, the waifs spawned by the incomprehensible and savage war; a war that envelops and affects each of us, and makes us partners in the common tragedy which brings me before you."
