Miners Alley Playhouse has commissioned award-winning playwright Josh Hartwell to write the compelling, untold, and true story of Mae Brussell, considered to be America's first mainstream conspiracy theorist during the 1960's and 1970's. The one-time Queen of Conspiracy attracted an audience of thousands. Her radio shows analyzed public government records to link the JFK and RFK assassinations with the Watergate scandal. Loyal fans and celebrities looking to make sense of an increasingly complex, crazy world were hungry for Brussell's version of the truth. With humor and wit, Josh Hartwell's new drama, set in present-day Denver, imagines the family who inherits Brussell's legacy. The play also explores what a conspiracy is, and the difference between today's
conspiracy theories and those of the past.
Josh Hartwell says about the play, "As I delved into the research about Mae Brussell, I repeatedly had goose bumps. So many things she was saying on her radio show in the 60s and 70s seemed like something current--like something she would be saying right now. This isn't a play about a psychic, but through her own almost obsessive research, Brussell predicted so much that has since happened in and to our country."
