About 'Straight Line Crazy'

What is 'Straight Line Crazy' about?

This play is the blazing account of the life of a man whose will, in the face of charismatic conviction, exposed the weakness of democracy. The story is of a powerful man, Robert Moses, who was the king of New York for forty uninterrupted years. By intimidation, sheer charm, and a hint of guile, Robert Moses manipulated the hierarchy of power in New York, even when he was never elected to office. He was a public official who was the New York Secretary of State and also served on the New York State Council of Parks. He wanted to improve the life of New York City's workers and for this, he made new bridges, new parks, and a 627 mi (1009 km) expressway. However, the '50s saw a group of people at grass roots organize against his ideas and the motor car. They wanted the city to be completely opposite to how it was becoming.
