Something You Did

Synopsis:
a stellar student from a good family, alison Moulton is serving her third decade behind bars for an anti-war action she participated in as member of a 60s radical group that resulted in the death of an African American police officer. Now petitioning for parole, she's visited by the daughter of the slain officer. But her fiercest detractor comes in a former comrade turned neo-conservative pundit, media star and best-selling author. Gene Biddle (Rick Foucheux) argues against his former partner while implicating another group member, now a current public official residing in the White House, for a past association with the radical terrorist group. Smear politics, 60s revisionism, the realities of a wasted life in prison, and the desire to rejoin society form the driving, conflicting forces in this fluid and eloquent play about the divisions in American culture and politics (The New York Times) Willy Holtzman has done the nearly impossible: In SOMeTHING YOU DID, he finds a fresh way to discuss modern terrorism. (Time Out ) a highly engrossing work, newly updated.
