In this play Clarence Darrow takes the audience through his legal career as well as many moments in his personal life. He speaks directly to the audience while discussing some of the more famous moments such as the famous Monkey Trial and the Leopold & Loeb trial. You get a complete picture of the man and the legend. It has been performed by Henry Fonda and Leslie Nielsen, among others.

This play is great reading and could be done with simple sets and lighting.
