This highly theatrical docudrama is based on the death in 1984 of Allan Berg, an outspoken, controversial Jewish talk radio personality based in Denver as he covered the growing white supremacist movement in America, those dedicated to violent revolution and the expulsion from “God’s Country” of non-Aryans. The story follows the trial of a paramilitary group called The Order, the career and death of Berg by The Order, and the hate filled career and death of The Order’s founder, Robert Matthews. This play contains adult content and may not be suitable for all audiences.
