"The cast and crew are working diligently to bring to life a time which eerily parallels today's political climate. The story is about the wire tapping and surveillance of John Lennon leading up to and beyond the 1972 Presidential election.” says director, Joseph Porter. “It is told through the eyes of two FBI agents on either side of the generation gap and explores how the changes of the events of their time affected their lives, attitudes and perspectives on life.”

The New Jersey playwright, Mark St. Germain premiered Ears on a Beatle at the Barrington Stage Company in 2003. Based on actual FBI documents declassified through the Freedom of Information Act and filled with humor and heartbreak, the play explores the personal relationship between the two agents from the early seventies until Lennon's death in 1981.

The award-winning company, Alliance Repertory Theatre, is under the Artistic Direction of Michael Driscoll and was founded in 1999 by Jerry Marino and Jeff Streger. They are a non-profit 501c3company dedicated to producing distinctive, challenging and thought-provoking theater, and to providing local actors, directors and writers the opportunity to display and expand their talents.
