This fall, Culture Project will launch an ambitious and unique new series gathering today's most brilliant and visionary minds to explore and debate the case for the impeachment of President George Bush and Vice President Richard Cheney. A Question of Impeachment will engage audiences in investigating crucial issues affecting all Americans, particularly as they prepare to elect a new leader, including expansion of executive powers, war, surveillance, torture and extraordinary rendition and government response to disaster.
The 5 week series will launch on Sunday, November 18, 2007 (in conjunction with the previously announced production of Howard Zinn's Rebel Voices) with a special opening celebration featuring singer and actress Phoebe Snow and Annabella Sciorra, and continue Sundays and Mondays through Sunday, December 16, 2007.
Sundays will be focused on addressing the issues through film, theater and other art forms. Film screenings will take place at 12:00 p.m. and will include a special cut of Jonathan Demme's forthcoming film about rebuilding after Katrina, Right to Return on December 2. Khaliah Ali, Bobby Cannavale, Scott Cohen, Staceyann Chin, Willie Garson, Gina Gershon, Julie Goldman, Josh Hamilton, Kristen Johnston, Lewis Lapham, Adam Rapp, Denis O'Hare, Sam Shepard and many others will be on hand to read sections of the Constitution, Articles of Impeachment and other documents throughout the series.
In addition, Steven Sater and Duncan Sheik (authors of Broadway's Spring Awakening) will perform new songs and Jorie Graham and will contribute new poems to be read during the series. Singer and songwriter Jackson Browne will participate in the series' final event on December 16 .
