Clarence Darrow, a play by David Rintels, Irving Stone
Here is the famous attorney reminiscing over his long and renowned career, touching on many of his famous trials including the “Monkey” trial and the sensational Leopold Loeb case. Darrow reviews much of America’s legal history with salty humor, courtroom gusto and human relish. His private life and many contemporary events, including labor conditions, are woven into this story of a man who accepted unpopular cases and defended unpopular causes. This champion of dissenters and underdogs was also a writer and lecturer and he conjures up many famous people of his life and times.
