Story Synopsis:

Lawyer Abigail Gersten is brilliant, Jewish, and a First Amendment absolutist. Professor Bernard Cooper is courtly, polite, and dedicated to convincing the world that the Holocaust was a Jewish hoax. When the government prosecutes him, he turns to Abby for help. Offended by censorship in any form, she takes the case but gets quickly drawn into a moral quagmire. Opposing her is an idealistic prosecutor and a venerable Holocaust survivor who call her loyalties into question and make her confront the differences between what is legal and what is right. The conflict that ensues concerns issues of history, memory, free speech, and how the stories we tell about ourselves determine who we are.

Produced by special arrangement with THE DRAMATIC PUBLISHING COMPANY of Woodstock, Illinois

    Done To Death

    By Fred Carmichael
    Directed by Aaron and Julie Breford

    Done to Death, by Fred Carmichael, is a mystery-comedy that packs in parodies of every mystery plot, hero, and villain from the golden age of film. The story alternates between reality and imagination as five mystery writers wrestle with the problem of writing a television mystery series.  All around them murders occur and each writer takes a turn at solving them in his/her own style.   Five once famous mystery writers; a couple who only write the most sophisticated of murders, a young author of the James Bond school, a retired writer of the hard hitting method, and an aging queen of the logical murder, involve the audience as they explore their own methods of investigation on a series of murders.
