The latest play by Pulitzer Prize-nominee Lee Blessing follows Minnesota natives Supreme Court Chief Justice Warren Burger and Justice Harry Blackmun, lifelong friends whose strong bonds are tested by the momentous decisions before them, including Roe v. Wade. Burger and Blackmun were best pals growing up in the same St. Paul neighborhood, and remained close despite their differing career paths, not to mention their often conflicting personal and political ideologies. But when Richard Nixon appoints them both to the highest court of the land, they find themselves at odds over some of the most controversial cases in American history. This world-premiere production from History Theatre stars Clyde Lund as Blackmun and Nathanial Fuller as Burger. The award-winning Blessing is also a Minnesota native, whose A Walk in the Woods
, a look at the developing relationship between a Russian and an American arms limitation negotiator, was nominated for both the Tony Award and the Pulitzer Prize.
