The Anderson Trial by Saul Levitt

Performance Date: November 30, 2014

8-12 Men, ages 18 and above. There will be doubling of roles.

Synopsis: In the summer of 1865 the government of the United States put Henry Wirz, the Warden of Andersonville Prison, on trial for atrocities committed during the Civil War. He was the only Confederate officer to face such charges.  During Wirz’s tenure at Andersonville more than 13,000 Union soldier needlessly perished, largely due to the deplorable conditions, exposure and malnutrition. This stirring courtroom drama revisits that most important historical question; can a soldier hide behind the orders of a superior officer? Can unconscionable actions be absolved by the exigencies of war? Will Henry Wirz face justice, or will he escape the hangman’s noose through some clever legal loophole?
