Trial on the Potomac Story

What if – President Richard M. Nixon had not resigned? What if – one young lawyer uncovered the shocking truth? What if – Nixon had fought back? Trial on the Potomac is a new play inspired by the real-life discoveries of Geoff Shepard, a lawyer who worked in the Nixon White House during the Watergate scandal. This is alternative history. In our play, Nixon does not resign but instead stands for an impeachment trial. The trial unmasks an astonishing conspiracy by the Washington political establishment, to drive Nixon from office. Every piece of evidence produced at trial has been corroborated to be true. That's our pact with the audience.

Trial on the Potomac tells a tale of secret meetings, secret memos, and secret collusion that will shock America.
