by Frank Basloe
Directed by William Carden

Yale, early 1960s. Professor Stanley Milgram's "obedience experiments" test how cruel people can be when they are just following orders.  Milgram gets the data he needs, but the lab assistant who conducted the experiment is left to grapple with his own responsibility.  Weaving in an historically separate incident, playwright Frank Basloe dramatizes a campus scandal in order to burrow deeper into the ways conformity can push us to act against our conscience.
