Trials of Clarence Darrow
by Paul D. Hauck
SynopsisThis is a one-man play that traces the legal career of Clarence Darrow, arguably the most famous trial lawyer in American history. It introduces him at the end of his career and briefly recaps his education and entry into the legal profession. The first act reviews his work as the most effective legal advocate for workers rights and the union movement, as well as covering his gradual disillusionment with the legal and political system leading to his indictment for attempting to bribe jurors. The second act covers his trial on these charges and his return to the practice of general law, including his handling of the Scopes trial, the Ossian Sweet murder trial, and the Leopold and Loeb murder trials.
