George Stevens Jr.’s award winning, one-man play is brought to the stage in this local production starring Eric Clausell, and directed by Brett Carr. It tells the amazing true story of former Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall. Told in the first person, the play revisits flashpoints in Marshall’s life: from his childhood in Baltimore, to law school, his rise to the Supreme Court, and his role in the civil rights movement. Poignant and inspirational, the play has previously been adapted into an HBO special.

“…the heroism of Marshall’s life’s work and the hard-fought civil-rights victories achieved under his stewardship are truly uplifting…I found myself misty eyed.”
