November 27th 1978: Dan White shoots and kills Harvey Milk, the first openly gay American to hold elected office and George Moscone, mayor of San Francisco.

May 21st 1979: Dan White is found not guilty of murder.

Execution of Justice is the story of how and why it happened.

A cast of 20 perform Emily Mann's award-winning 1982 verbatim play - a panoramic view of a time of upheaval and change, told in words taken from trial transcripts, interviews, reportage and the street.

Moving in and out of the courtroom and backwards and forwards in time, Execution of Justice captures a divided city in crisis and the impact of loss.

"More than any other American writer of our time, the body of her work has demonstrated the importance of theatre to the psychic well-being and sanity of a society"
Athol Fugard

"One of our most urgently engaging, provocative and significant American Playwrights whose work bears witness to some of the most pressing moral issues of our time."
Joyce Carol Oates
