Details

During the 1950’s, the great era of Jewish humor, we meet irascible comedy screenwriter Bernie Lutz who is about to open a big movie. When he discovers to his surprise – and chagrin – that his name appears on Senator Joseph McCarthy’s infamous “black list,” Bernie is confronted with the dilemma of naming names and implicating his writing partner in order to save himself and his career. This poignant solo comedy shows one small man facing the tough American events of the mid-20th century. A story as relevant today as it was during the McCarthy era. Cast: Phil Johnson. Q&As will be held with cast and local expert, dates TBD. Check website for details
