THEIR FINEST HOUR: CHURCHILL AND MURROW
THEIR FINEST HOUR: CHURCHILL AND MURROW. This full-length play sheds light on the unique relationship between Winston Churchill and Edward R. Murrow during the early years of WW II when England was under attack by Hitlers air-force. Murrow, who was covering the war for CBS Radio News, not only became friendly with Churchill, but had a passionate and adulterous love affair with the Prime Ministers daughter-in-law.
Directed by Stu Berg, THEIR FINEST HOUR stars Michael Karm, Tyler Cook, Chantelle Albers, Beau Hogan, and Brian Fortuna (Murrow-alternate). Produced by John Lant and Anne Mesa.
The production runs on Saturdays at 8:00PM and Sundays at 2:00PM - Opens June 16, 2018 - July 22nd, 2018.
