REALITY BITES: ‘#Ferguson The Play’ Actors Did This After Being Smacked With Truth About Brown’s Death

Published on April 24, 2015

Some people really can’t handle the truth. That definitely seems to be the case here.

Five cast members of the upcoming Ferguson stage play abruptly quit this week after reading the play’s script, which recreates the shooting death of teenager Michael Brown by police officer Darren Wilson using testimony taken from the grand jury proceedings in the case.

According to the Los Angeles Times, the cast members quit the production after learning the true circumstances surrounding Brown’s death. Playwright and producer Phelim McAleer told Breitbart News that the script is based strictly on grand jury testimony, with “nothing added. No dialogue, no characters.”

“He claims that he wrote this to try to get to the truth of it, but everybody’s truth is totally subjective,” former cast member Veralyn Jones told the Times. “When you come to the matter of what really happened, nobody really knows for sure, because everybody has a different take on it. … It just didn’t feel right to me.”

A self-described “very liberal, left-wing-leaning” cast member, Philip Casnoff, told theTimes that when he learned about McAleer’s conservative background, he thought, “Whoa, this is not the place for me to be.”
