by Joanna McClelland Glass, directed by Carol Charniga
October 15, 16, 17, 2010 (Fri.-Sun.)This bittersweet play is set in 1967 when Francis Biddle -- Attorney General under FDR and Chief Judge of the Nuremberg trials -- is 81 years old and struggling defiantly with age and failing health. His wife has forced upon him a new secretary, Sarah -- all of 25 years old -- and the two try to find a way to communicate. These two strangers, at dramatically different places in their lives, influence one another in touching and unexpected ways. Trying is based upon Glass’ own experience as Biddle’s personal secretary.
