“Obscenity on Trial: The Case Against Dr. Charles Malchow”: October, 2021

Written by Thomas Fabel • Directed by Chad Snyder

“Obscenity On Trial: The Case Against Dr. Charles Malchow,” explores the repercussions of the Comstock Act of 1873, which prohibited the use of U.S. Mail for any “obscene, lewd, lascivious, immoral or indecent” publications. The play recalls the events surrounding a promotional mailing for a clinical book written by Twin Cities’ physician, Dr. Charles W. Malchow, titled “The Sexual Life”, in a way only Landmark Center’s History Plays can – with noted Twin Cities judges, legal practitioners, and academics trading robes for costumes to bring the events to life. View the full performance here.
