Award-winning actor\playwright John Jiler tells the remarkable story of the youngest child of Julius and Ethel Rosenberg. Orphaned at six following his parents' execution for espionage, the boy was adopted by the man who wrote the song 'Strange Fruit'----seared into our consciousness by Billie Holiday. Playing a gallery of rogues, heroes and saints, Jiler takes us on a journey of our politics from then 'til now…
"Jiler….bursts with the talent, wit and energy that separates living theatre from all entertainment that comes in a can."
---New York Times
