About Trial of the Castonsville Nine

It is 1968 and the war is raging in Vietnam. A draft card is viewed by many as a death certificate. In the midst of a divided country, with corrosive mistrust in government and authority, nine would-be bystanders in Catonsville, Maryland decide that complacency is complicity — it is time for action. Their single act of conscience to halt the draft awakens a national resistance.

Transport Group Artistic Director Jack Cummings III has radically re-imagined this provocative piece of theatre created from the actual court transcripts of the Catonsville Nine trial. Actors David Huynh, Mia Katigback and Eunice Wong play over a dozen roles as they excavate the stories and inspiration behind these history-making activists.

This production is produced in partnership with the National Asian American Theatre Company (NAATCO).
