Hello, Johnny. Set against the backdrop of the Mountain View Mausoleum in Altadena, The Speakeasy Society's critically-acclaimed THE JOHNNY CYCLE gives voice to Johnny, a WWI soldier, trapped in his own mind, unable to communicate with the outside world.
Inspired by Dalton Trumbo's "Johnny Got His Gun" and his own struggles with the House Un-American Activities committee, THE JOHNNY CYCLE guides audiences through a personalized experience examining the costs of war.
Johnny may speak for the dead, but who will listen?
