Performance Dates

In a brilliant and compelling first play, award-winning playwright and screenwriter, John Logan, recreates the 1924 “trial of the century.”  Teenagers Leopold and Loeb kidnap and murder a 14-year-old in a sick effort to create the perfect crime. Their complex and fascinating relationship of fevered intellect, romantic passion, and distorted philosophy is unpacked by defense attorney Clarence Darrow who reshapes the trial into a vivid and powerful exploration of violence, vengeance and justice.
