The Front Page is a production which was originally written by Ben Hecht and Charles MacArthur, two former reporters.
The Front Page: A Synopsis
The whole play unfolds in a single set, a dingy Press Room located in Chicago’s Criminal Courts Building. The room overlooks the gallows behind the Cook County Jail below.
In this room, a number of reporters for most of the city’s major newspapers are hanging around and trying to pass the time. As they wait, they indulge in games of poker and crack pungent jokes and wisecracks about all of the latest news. One reporter from the Examiner named Hildy Johnson, shows up late. He is a very arrogant individual and has come to tell his fellow reporters good-bye and that he is quitting reporting to take on a more respectable job and get married.
Very soon, the reporters gathered in this room will all bear witness to the hanging of a man named Earl Williams. Williams, a white man who is allegedly a Communist revolutionary, has been convicted of killing a black policeman.
The reporters soon receive news that Earl Williams has just escaped from jail. As everyone is scrambling to figure out what to do, Hildy tries to figure out how to react. At this time, Williams climbs through the window. He tells Hildy that he’s innocent and that he shot the policeman by mistake. The story unfolds to reveal that Williams was a scapegoat and his death was supposed to help the mayor and sheriff gain more black votes in the re-election.
Realizing that this is the story of a lifetime, Hildy must find a safe place to interview Williams without being discovered by rival reporters. He also needs to enlist the help of Walter Burns, the managing editor of the Examiner. Burns is a devious man who will stop at nothing to keep Hildy working as a reporter for the Examiner.
