A provocative look at our most controversial attorney, Clarence Darrow as his great mind slips away. Best known for defending the teenage child killers Leopold and Loeb, and for defending science teacher John Scopes in the Scopes Monkey Trial. This one man play takes a look into his private life as he packs up his office. Sifting through letters and thoughts, the audience will get an in depth look inside the man, his cases, his public and his very private life as well as his triumphs and his personal demons.
Gary L Anderson is the country’s most lauded portrayer of Clarence Darrow, with his work characterized in newspapers across the country as “. . . in the same league as Holbrook’s Mark Twain "
