Taylor Little Theatre

In 1947, Dalton Trumbo was one of America’s top screenwriters until he and other artists were jailed for their political beliefs. Directed by Jay Roach, Trumbo recounts how the fiercely independent Dalton used his words and wit to expose the absurdity and injustice of the Hollywood blacklist. Starring Bryan Cranston, Helen Mirren, John Goodman and Louis C.K., Trumbo offers a sobering, tragicomic look at American film’s most shameful era.
