Description

Renowned actor, organizer, producer and long-time Plainfield resident Donny Osman will present the play “Trumbo: Red, White and Blacklisted” by Christopher Trumbo.

Taking the words of his father, one of the “Hollywood Ten” whose suspected membership in the Communist Party would land him before the House Un-American Activities Committee, followed by a year in jail for contempt of Congress –  “As far as I was concerned, it was a completely just verdict.  I had full contempt for that Congress” – Christopher Trumbo draws a sympathetic portrait of a man whose letters from jail testified to a spirit unbowed, and a wit both wicked and childlike.  It is these letters, some of which seem as carefully crafted as had they been intended for performance or publication – and they were in fact published, six years before Trumbo’s death – which drive the play, at times with a power, lyricism and stamina evoking the oratory traditions of ancient Greece. ~ Leslie Weismann

The Plainfield Town Hall Opera House is a modest-sized, affordable venue, with a capacity of 240 people (including a balcony that holds 45).

It is available to host all kinds of events – opera, theater, lectures, dances, movies, weddings, meetings, and other special events. It is valued for its excellent acoustic qualities and for the ambiance created by its high, tin-clad ceilings and walls, its hardwood floor, tall sash windows, proscenium stage, and red velvet curtains.

The building is owned and maintained by the town of Plainfield and is managed by the non-profit “Friends of the Plainfield Town Hall Opera House” (FTHOH), an organization of volunteers dedicated to keeping the arts and community alive and thriving in Plainfield and the surrounding region.
