Conscience: Virtual Version

Item details



Stream on-demand Oct. 27 until 8 PM Oct. 31 for a suggested donation of $25!

The original cast of Conscience is together again for a virtual version of this world-premiere. Don't miss what The New York Times called  “a timely boxing match of a history play" or Harriet Harris’ portrayal of Margaret Chase Smith as “a dry-witted hero with the rare courage to take on a lying bully who is sowing chaos, ruining reputations and threatening the very fabric of the nation.”  

This new virtual production gives you an intimate, up-close and personal look at this timely story.  

Photos from the staged show combine with the original music and sound from our production to create a uniquely intimate experience, featuring the original cast reuniting digitally to revisit the play by Joe DiPietro in its entirety.

On June 1, 1950, Senator Margaret Chase Smith stood on the Senate floor and delivered her “Declaration of Conscience'' in a historic moment of political courage. This sharply written new play by Tony Award-winner Joe DiPietro takes you behind the scenes of 1950s Washington in the days leading up to and following the singular speech that rattled McCarthyism, Congress, and the nation itself.

We recommend allowing at least 3 hours of full watch time prior to the 8 PM Oct. 31 streaming cut-off.
