The play was written by Robert Schenkkan, who received the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 1992 for his play "The Kentucky Cycle".

A redacted version of the Mueller report into Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. election first reached the public in April.

An all-star, live-streamed staged reading of the Mueller Report just might knock down the last excuse standing between you and the 448 doorstop.

The cast featured Annette Bening, Kevin Kline, John Lithgow, Frederick Weller, Ben McKenzie, Michael Shannon, Noah Emmerich, Justin Long, Jason Alexander, Gina Gershon, Wilson Cruz, Joel Grey, Alyssa Milano, Kyra Sedgwick, Alfre Woodard, Piper Perabo, Zachary Quinto, and Aidan Quinn, with additional participation by Sigourney Weaver, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Mark Hamill, and more. The performance will be available to watch the Law Works website, where the group is soliciting donations to "hold President Trump accountable". Julia Louis-Dreyfus (Veep) and Mark Hamill (Star Wars) are also scheduled to make appearances. According to a press release, it was executive-produced by Susan Disney Lord, Abigail Disney, and Timothy Disney.

The live reading was put together by the organization Law Works, which is working to educate Americans on political issues, including the Mueller investigation. Specifically, it references the 10 episodes of potential obstruction of justice by Donald Trump before and during his presidency.

Mueller wrote in his report released in April that there was not enough evidence to establish a criminal conspiracy between Trump's 2016 campaign and Russian Federation, but said he could not exonerate Trump on obstruction of justice.

The report examined several situations in which Trump attempted to influence or curtail Mueller's investigation.
