A provocative look at our most hated and revered attorney Clarence Darrow as his great mind slips away. Best known for defending teenage child killers Leopold and Loeb, and for defending science teacher John Scopes in the Scopes Monkey Trial. In this show, Darrow reveals his very private life, his trials, his personal demons, his jury-tampering charges. Personally reckless and professionally fearless, Darrow now stubbornly faces his two greatest opponents: disease and death. Knowing the odds are against him to the end, he remained Clarence Darrow . . . an American Iconoclast. 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.”
Gary Anderson, actor and CEO of the Clarence Darrow Foundation, tours year round and is the nationally renowned and lauded portrayer of Clarence Darrow and William Jennings Bryan. He is a member of the Screen Actors Guild ( SAG).
