The original cast of two-time Tony winner Joe DiPietros CONSCIENCE, starring Harriet Harris, will come together again for a live reading of the play with George Street Playhouse to stream October 27 - 30. Due to the shutdown of theaters throughout the state in March, the world premiere of the production was canceled just days after it opened. On June 1, 1950, Senator Margaret Chase Smith stood on the Senate floor and delivered her Declaration of Conscience'' in a historic moment of political courage. This sharply written new play by Tony Award-winner Joe DiPietro takes you behind the scenes of 1950s Washington in the days leading up to and following the singular speech that rattled McCarthyism, Congress and the nation itself.
