See George Street Playhouse's CONSCIENCE again! Newly announced virtual version!
The original cast of Joe DiPietro’s Conscience, starring Tony Award-winner Harriet Harris as Margaret Chase Smith and Lee Sellars as Senator Joseph McCarthy, will come together again for a limited live virtual version of the play streaming October 27 - October 30!
Due to the shutdown of theaters throughout the state in March, the world-premiere of the production was canceled just days after it opened.
We loved having you here and that to you got to see it!
NOW is your opportunity to see a version of the show The New York Times called “a timely boxing match of a history play" and share it with family and friends.On June 1, 1950, Senator Margaret Chase Smith stood on the Senate floor and delivered her “Declaration of Conscience."
This sharply written new play by Tony Award-winner Joe DiPietro takes you behind the scenes of 1950s Washington in the days leading up to and following the singular speech that rattled McCarthyism, Congress, and the nation itself and introduces to you to the woman who delivered it in a historic moment of political courage.
TICKETS: Virtual Household Tickets for the reading are available for a suggested donation to George Street Playhouse of $25. OR pay what you like, starting at $5, and enjoy from the comfort of your own home.
