The true story of Herb Streicher – who became Harry Reems – and his legendary co-star Linda Lovelace, following the strange and bizarre journey of the creation of the movie, its impact on audiences (it is said to have grossed more than $600 million, and is possibly the most profitable movie of all time) and on films and American culture is told in the Deep Throat Sex Scandal, along with the subsequent raids, arrests and banning of the film.

It then becomes Reems’ story, about how the actor himself was put on trial for obscenity and not the director, producer, or distributor. The trial stands as one of the great battles against censorship in modern American history — taken up by Alan Dershowitz, helping to expand the career of one of America’s best-known attorneys.  At the time, Hollywood stars, such as Warren Beatty and Jack Nicholson, rallied against the censorship of "Deep Throat" and came to Reems’ defense, fearing that the US government would censor mainstream films next — once it got a taste of banning films for their content.

More About the Deep Throat Sex Scandal – now playing through April 14

The Deep Throat Sex Scandal, at the Zephryr Theatre, is a new play by David Bertolino about the making of the famed, groundbreaking, 1970s pornographic film "Deep Throat," the subsequent controversy surrounding the film that ignited the sexual revolution -- and how, due to its immense popularity, obscenity laws were eventually changed allowing all films to more freely explore adult themes and content. The media labeled the film "porno chic," despite the fact that the film was banned in many places in the United States and became the object of obscenity trials.

The Deep Throat Sex Scandal contains adult themes and nudity; no one eighteen and under will be admitted. Tickets are available online at deepthroattheplay.com or by calling 800-838-3006.
