THE TRIAL OF THE CATONSVILLE NINE
By Daniel Berrigan
Directed by Rahaleh Nassri

Based on transcripts of a historical event, Daniel Berrigan adapted this play from the edited transcript of his trial—along with his brother Rev. Philip Berrigan and seven others—for removing records from a Selective Service office and burning them to protest the Vietnam War. After they were convicted and sentenced, Berrigan memorialized the trial in this award-winning play, first produced at the Mark Taper Forum in 1972 and later made into a feature film. The New York Times described the play as “positively riveting.”
