Editor reviews

John Logan’s explosive play, Never the Sinner, is the dark story of two well-to-do teenagers in 1924 Chicago who committed a thrill kill, targeting a 14-year-old boy. The two were arrested and defended at the subsequent trial, dubbed "The Trial of the Century", by famous attorney Clarence Darrow, in perhaps the greatest case of his luminous career.

An all-star cast performs this complicated and captivating play in front of a live audience, including Tony award-winning actor, Denis O’Hare (Take Me Out), film and television star, Ron Livingston of Swingers and HBO’s Band of Brothers, and a full cast of acclaimed theater veterans. This one will get under your skin a bit.

Summary

Two boys commit a murder - not for gain, or out of passion - just to do it, just to experience the thrill. Based on the infamous 1924 trial of Leopold and Loeb, Never the Sinner is their story and the story of one of the most famous American lawyers and civil libertarians, Clarence Darrow. In the case of a lifetime, Darrow is called in to defend the monstrous and win freedom for the depraved.

An L.A. Theatre Works full-cast performace featuring Thomas Carroll, David Darlow, William Larson, Ron Livingston, Darren Matthias, Tom Mula, Denis P. O'Hare and Donna Powers.
