CAROLINE BURNS COOKE at EDINBURGH FESTIVAL 2014

Posted by AVAnti Productions on July 28, 2014 at 10:40 AM Comments comments (0)

AVANTI P&M is very excited to announce that our wonderful actress CAROLINE BURNS COOKE is going to Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2014 for a full  run with the American production of THE TRIAL OF JANE FONDA, with Oscar nominater, Golden Globe winner, actress Anne Archer in lead role, understudied by our brilliant actress. 

THE TRIAL OF JANE FONDA

has just finished a short preview period in London at The Gatehouse Theatre and

will be seen in Edinburgh at The Assembly Rooms, opening on Wednesday, 30th July.




Jane Fonda is one of the most controversial anti-war activists in American history. On 18th June 1988, in a little-known event, Fonda confronted a group of hostile Vietnam veterans at a church in Waterbury, Connecticut, who were boycotting the filming of her movie STANLEY & IRIS, co-starring Robert De Niro. They feel she has betrayed the country and them. A former chaplain makes it possible for both sides to hear each other. This is based on a true incident. The vets are loosely based on the real men who attended. The true story of what Fonda actually did and how her actions helped end the Vietnam War has never been told before.

Starring Oscar nominated, Golden Globe winner, Anne Archer (Fatal Attraction, Patriot Games, Clear and Present Danger).

Written and directed by seven-time Emmy-winning producer/director, Terry Jastrow.
