The collection is comprised of one untitled playscript (50 pages) written by Barbara Clairchilde, Leslie Hoag and Dudley Knight.
The play deals with the espionage trial of Julius and Ethel Rosenberg (1951) and the couple's resulting execution (1953).
Julius and Ethel Rosenberg were tried on charges of conspiracy to commit espionage in 1951. They were convicted when the court
determined they had provided information about the atomic bomb to the Soviet Union. In 1953 they were executed for the crime,
an event that was and remains controversial.
