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.

Fabulous, thought provoking theater. My husband and I talked about the ideas of this play all the way home. The story is well written and the acting is terrific. Highly recommended.

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.” – newcitystage.com

“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
