Danny Casolaro Died For You Sep 23 - Dec 21, 2014  
TimeLine Theatre Company Danny Casolaro Died For You
 
This thriller is based on the true story of Danny Casolaro, a freelance reporter investigating high-level corruption in the Reagan/Bush Justice Department. A year into uncovering information, Casolaro was found dead in a Virginia motel room, his arms slashed more than a dozen times. The authorities called it suicide, but a host of conspiracy theorists-and the House Judiciary Committee-disagreed. Casolaro's recovered notes detailed his plan to expose several major players behind numerous clandestine activities, including the Iran hostage situation, Nicaragua arms-for-drugs deals, and much more. Playwright Dominic Orlando-a cousin of Casolaro-pulls the curtain back on Danny's journey and the ultimate price he paid trying to find the truth.
