Let's go back to a time before we were all immersed in electronics. A well-known lawyer and former judge both encouraged me to help publicize this terrific play – happy to spread the word!
29, 2013 — 1st Stage, Tysons’ award winning, non-profit, professional
theater, announces the opening of “Never
the Sinner,” directed by Jeremy Skidmore.
Award-winning playwright -screenwriter John Logan recreates the 1924
“trial of the century,” in a brilliant and compelling play. Teenagers Leopold
and Loeb kidnap and murder a 14-year-old in a sick effort to create the perfect
crime. Defense attorney Clarence Darrow reshapes the trial into a vivid and
powerful exploration of violence, vengeance and justice and unpacks the boys’
complex relationship of fevered intellect, romantic passion, and distorted
philosophy. The production runs Fridays at 8pm, Saturdays at 2 & 8pm, and
Sundays at 2 & 7pm, through April 14.
A variety of post-show talkbacks with the director, actors and Fairfax
attorney Robert Hall will take place over the remaining show weeks. Check the
website for more information.
