The Trials of Harvey Matusow
This is the strange yet true story of a man who, at the height of the Cold War, achieved the impossible by uniting America s left and right - in hatred for him. Once a keen communist, he became a McCarthyite supergrass, spent four years testifying wherever and whenever he could get paid to do so, then set the cat among the stoolpigeons by revealing the truth: that he had fabricated almost all his evidence. Set in the late 1960s, the show finds Matusow living in self-imposed exile in England, looking back on a journey that took him from post-war Manhattan to McCarthyite Washington to Lewisburg Penitentiary - and thereafter to a struggle for redemption among the underground art worlds of New York and London.
