Gods of the Lightning

   Opening on 24 October 1929 at the Little Theatre, the powerful drama by Maxwell Anderson and Harold Hickerson ran only 29 performances. Inspired by the injustice of the Sacco-Vanzetti case, the play centers upon an Irish and an Italian labor organizer who are framed for the murder of a paymaster. A corrupt court system allows tainted evidence and coached witnesses. The execution of the two innocent men is confirmed in the last scene.
