BLACK BOX THEATER – WORK IN PROGRESS – PERFORMANCE EVENT
CLARENCE DARROW: A ONE-MAN PLAY BY DAVID RINTELS

Independent actor and playwright Cedric Liqueur performs this one hour 40 minute, work-in-progress performance based on Irving Stone’s 1941 biography “Clarence Darrow for the Defense.” The first performance was by actor Henry Fonda in the 1970’s.

Straying outside the boundaries of convention, Liqueur’s eclectic one-man biopic of Clarence Darrow suffuses his passion for the solo performance and his homage to famous people in history by profession or attribute.

A champion of dissenters and underdogs, Clarence Darrow (1857-1936) was among the first attorneys to be called a “labor lawyer,” and he defended the teenage thrill killers Leopold and Loeb, and John T. Scopes in the famous Scopes “Monkey” Trail.

Cedric Liqueur is a former member of the Royal Shakespeare Company, Stratford-upon-Avon. Since 1997 Liqueur has presented historical biographies as one-man solo performances throughout the United States, Canada and Europe.
