The Trial of the Catonsville Nine

On May 17, 1968, at the height of the Vietnam War, nine Catholic activists used napalm to destroy military draft records taken from a Selective Service office outside Baltimore. The nine men and women (including Daniel and Philip Berrigan) were tried, found guilty of destroying government property, and sentenced to three years in jail. This new edition of The Trial of the Catonsville Nine incorporates essays by Robin Anderson and James Marsh that examine the play's themes in modern context, including activism related to the war in Iraq.
