In 1980, Pittsburgh mother and housewife Molly Rush walked into a G.E. plant in King of Prussia and took a hammer to the nosecone of a nuclear warhead in protest of the buildup of our nuclear arsenal. She and her fellow activists went to trial and spent time in prison, and the world was pulled back from the brink of nuclear annihilation for the time being. The play is inspired by the non-fiction account Hammer of Justice, by Liane Ellison Norman. Tammy Ryan’s award winning plays have been produced across the country and internationally.
