Watts Hall Community Players bring back John Burstein’s solo performance as Clarence Darrow! In this one-man show, John Burstein of Lincolnville portrays the famous attorney, champion of underdogs, as he reminisces about his many sensational and often controversial trials. This inspiring and entertaining production starred Henry Fonda on Broadway. Peppered with salty humor, courtroom gusto and human relish, Burstein’s portrayal of the colorful attorney who successfully argued such high-profile cases as the Scopes “Monkey” trial is riveting and highly entertaining.
The return performance of “Darrow” will be benefit four community organizations: Knox County Meals On Wheels; Knox County Homeless Coalition; Restorative Justice; and the Knox Clinic. Tickets are $15 and may be purchased at the door or online. Shows Friday and Saturday, Oct. 7 and 8, at 7 p.m.; and Sunday, Oct. 9, at 3 p.m.
