A play about one man’s constant fight for civil rights.

America at the turn of the 20th century: a land of milk, honey, poverty and injustice.  It is 1931, and America’s most famous lawyer, critic, agnostic, orator and founding member of the American Civil Liberties Union is beginning to lose his fight.  He has dedicated fifty working years to ‘defending the damned’.  With time to fill, and stories to tell, Clarence Darrow takes to the floor one last time…

Celebrated actor Michael J Shannon, brings the role to life in a rare production of this one-man play by David W Rintels,
directed by Susannah Tresilian.
