The historical background, the writing , the acting, and the entire experience was great. I hope that lots of people see it and enjoy it as much as we did.

Acting was good, especially the professor, but a few too many holes in the story. Things that didn't quite jive or make sense. No real explanation of the professor's actions, why he did things, what prompted the actions and why he continued them...continued

Yet another show about which we disagree with a prominent critic! We thought the play was interesting, the themes relevant, the acting sharp, the production engrossing. So there! Theater space is intimate which works well for this production.

Quotes & Highlights

“Gorman’s dialogue crackles with humor and passion; she makes Douglas a great storyteller as well as a historian … Director Steve Scott is sensitive to the shifting emotions that run throughout the piece and guides the pacing with a deft touch.” –

“Gorman deftly imagines a timeless moral and ethical struggle through a contemporary lens … By threading the drama with Graham’s fiery historic lectures, the script creates thought-provoking parallels and tension between the American past of the textbooks he teaches with Graham’s personal experiences — motifs the talented cast artfully grasps.” – Time Out Chicago
