"Trumbo - Red, White and Blacklisted"
Buffalo Theatre Ensemble (BTE) concludes its 2012-2013 Season with Christopher Trumbo’s “Trumbo – Red, White and Blacklisted" at the Building K Theatre on the College of DuPage Campus.
In 1947, Dalton Trumbo, author of the classic films “Spartacus,” “Roman Holiday” and “Exodus” refused to testify to the House Un-American Activities Committee. He was found in contempt of Congress and was sent to prison and blacklisted as one of the infamous “Hollywood Ten.” Written as homage to his father, Christopher Trumbo’s two-man show, "Trumbo-Red, White and Blacklisted" is inspired by Dalton’s brilliant and razor-sharp letters written to family, friends, former friends, and acquaintances, and sheds new light on how the Dalton took on Congress, Hollywood, and the Red Scare -- and won. "Positively sizzles with wit...sweet, sad and ultimately uplifting," says Variety.
The play will run through May 3 through 19. Performances are Thursday-Saturday at 8 p.m. and Sunday at 2 p.m. Tickets are $25 to $33. $2 discounts are available for non-COD students and seniors age 60 and over.
