About the Show

Written by Christopher Trumbo
Directed by Peter Askin

Opening Night is October 28 at 8pm.

Falcon Theatre is proud to present acclaimed Tony Award-winning Best Actor, Joe Mantegna, in the Los Angeles Premiere of TRUMBO. The riveting Off-Broadway drama by playwright Christopher Trumbo is an homage to the playwright's legendary screenwriter father, Dalton Trumbo (Spartacus, Roman Holiday, Exodus). In 1947, Dalton Trumbo stood up to the House on Un-American Activities Committee and was thrown into prison as one of the infamous "Hollywood Ten." From his luminous and amusing letters to family, friends and enemies emerges the story of a family's survival and one stubborn artist's quest to break the blacklist.
