The story of the staging of Marc Blitzstein's 1937 musical "The Cradle Will Rock", which the government placed an injunction against. The actors led the audience through New York to another venue and acted in the auditorium without props or costumes, just one action during the charged Depression-era in which Orson Welles and John Houseman's theatrical collaborations pushed artistic and political boundaries.
