Griffin Theatre Company presents an exploration of the American Dream, with a rare revival of Maxwell Anderson’s 1930s drama Winterset
. Inspired by the infamous murder case of the 1920s when the Italian anarchists and immigrants, Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti, were arrested, convicted and electrocuted despite the insubstantial evidence against them. Anderson’s 1935 poetic verse play follows a young man’s quest to prove his father’s innocence years after he was executed for a murder he may not have committed.
