The Indictment Project 

or  The Jack Smith Reader's Theatre

The Indictment Project dramatizes an accurate recitation of the text of Document 1, Filed 08/01/23, 

pertaining to Case 1:23-cr-00257-TSC, in the matter of UNITED STATES OF AMERICA v. Donald J. Trump.

Inspired by the Living Newspapers of the Federal Theatre Project, 

The Indictment Project not only breathes life into an important contemporary text -- and aids the desire of Special Council Jack Smith that, "everyone read it in full" -- but also illustrates how a diverse cross section of American citizens can individually interpret such imminently compelling dramatic material.

We hope you enjoy this collage of community, creativity, and (alleged) criminality.
