The cast includes Hugo Armstrong (Mysterious Circumstances, God of Carnage) as Frank Sullivan, Amy Brenneman (Judging Amy, Private Practice) as Amy Katz, Emmy and Tony Award winner Bryan Cranston (All the Way, Network) as Charles Nichols, Donna Simone Johnson (Broken Fences, Pang!) as Quinn Harris, Tedra Millan (Present Laughter, The Wolves) as Maggie Rosen, Seth Numrich (Switzerland, Turn: Washington’s Spies) as Lucas Poole and Brandon Scott (Grey’s Anatomy, This Is Us) as Baxter Forrest.

Distinguished Harvard professor Charles Nichols (Emmy & Tony Award winner Bryan Cranston) finds himself in hot water after inviting an incendiary white nationalist to speak at his annual symposium. His colleagues are concerned, his students are in revolt, but Charles is undeterred in his plot to expose and academically thrash his invited guest. This profoundly relevant new play by Paul Grellong (The Boys, Manuscript) examines the insidiousness of hate disguised as free speech and the question of who ultimately pays the price.
