The Trial of Jane Fonda

T0
1972. North Vietnam: Driven to halt the slaughter of young lives, iconic movie star Jane Fonda travels to Vietnam where she is photographed laughing and clapping, astride an anti-aircraft gun, designed to shoot down American planes. Overnight the soldiers' sexy pin-up becomes 'Hanoi Jane'; traitor to her country and betrayer of those very young men. 1988. Waterbury, Connecticut: Bitter demonstrations by veterans halt filming on a movie co-starring Fonda and Robert De Niro. Determined to stop her past dictating her future, Jane requests a meeting and enters a room full of angry men for whom the war still rages. The content of the meeting is never divulged. Having retraced Fonda's steps, interviewed her guides, dozens of veterans and Fonda herself, Terry Jastrow's play conjectures the battles which were fought in that encounter.
