“Project Unspeakable” Explores Assassinations of JFK, Malcolm X, Martin Luther King, Bobby Kennedy

 
On [day of week], [date], at [time], at [place] the [name of group] will present a dramatic reading [theatrical performance] of “Project Unspeakable,” a new play about the 1960’s assassinations of John F. Kennedy, Malcolm X, Martin Luther King, and Robert F. Kennedy.

“Project Unspeakable” was inspired by James Douglass’ groundbreaking and meticulously researched book, JFK and the Unspeakable: Why He Died and Why It Matters.  It was written by playwright Court Dorsey and associate playwrights Debbie Lynangale and Steve Wangh, based on extensive research about the four assassinated leaders.

Through the medium of live theatre, the playwrights’ intention is to challenge the silence that for decades has surrounded these four “unspeakable” assassinations (“unspeakable” being a term Douglass borrows from renowned Trappist monk Thomas Merton).  In so doing, they hope to shed light on the “unspeakables” of today – the officially covered-up crimes on the part of elements within the U.S. government and their corporate allies that have led to or worsened the multiple crises that currently beset our country and the world.

The play includes the words and stories of courageous individuals who, despite government intimidation, refused to be silent about what they knew about these assassinations.  And it calls on all of us to examine our own responses over the years to such crimes, then and now, and to consider the potential for responsible action.

The reading [performance] is free and open to the public.  Donations to cover expenses are welcome […is open to the public. Tickets are $$$ each and can be purchased at….].
