An Evening with Clarence Darrow

Length: 1 hr 30 mins
Intermission: None
Seating: General Admission
You choose your seats when you get to the theater.

“ALL TOO HUMAN” tells the story of Clarence Darrow’s fight against religious intolerance, capital punishment, prohibition, the oppression of the workers and anything else which he felt impeded the bringing of enlightenment and culture to the human mind. He was the plain-speaking son of Mid-Western abolitionists who considered himself 'a cunning actor like that other trial lawyer from Illinois, Abe Lincoln'. He argued and won many of the most famous cases ever brought to trial; defending the down-trodden and the a-moral; the maligned and the misguided; the obsessed and the oppressed; all human beings; all too human.

His career and convictions re-defined the essence of the American legal system.

In 1912, however, he was indicted for bribing a jurist.

He hired the infamous Earl Rogers to defend him; but decided to deliver his own summation to his own jury.

He won.

Then came Leopold and Loeb followed the next year by a case in Dayton, Tennessee which became known internationally as the Scopes Monkey Trial.
