Working at the Museum of Natural History has its ups and downs for entomologists Betty and Jeff.

TheatreWorks presents


By Joe Gilford
Directed by Giovanna Sardelli

Mountain View Center for the Performing Arts
500 Castro St.
Mountain View, CA 94041

With the 1950s Red Scare in full swing, the House Un-American Activities Committee attacks “subversion” in the arts. When a romance blossoms between a rising comic and a firebrand actress, they face being blacklisted along with their friends and fellow artists. Will they lose their careers or betray each other and be branded forever as “finks”? Based on the true story of comedian/actor Jack Gilford, this stunning comic drama is written by his son. Contains mature language.
