According to Playbill, Alfred Molina, Julianne Moore, Meryl Streep and Stanley Tucci will participate in Ariel Dorfman’s Speak Truth to Power: Voices from Beyond the Dark, chronicling global human rights abuses, at the Public Theater May 3. The Public joins Kerry Kennedy and the Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice and Human Rights to present the reading of Kerry Kennedy’s book that has been adapted for the stage by Dorfman. Proceeds benefit Habitat for Humanity’s earthquake relief efforts in Chile. In addition to Molina, Moore, Streep and Tucci, the star-studded evening will include Elias Koteas, Viggo Mortensen, Aidan Quinn, Gloria Reuben and Debra Winger. David Esbjornson will direct.

According to the Public, “Speak Truth to Power chronicles the true-story accounts of heroic people withstanding horrific human rights abuses across the globe. Voices from around the world cry out against violence and oppression — from world leaders like Desmond Tutu to the unknown activists working on the ground level. Speak Truth to Power is a powerful and moving testimony of the will of the human spirit to rise up against injustice, even in the face of incredible darkness.”
