Gordon W. Brown
Gordon W. Brown will portray the iconic Clarence Darrow in excerpts from Clarence Darrow by David W. Rintels. Darrow is most famous for his defense of John Scopes in the “Monkey Trial” and had a long legal career as a champion of organized labor, a advocate for the poor, and an ardent defender of the hopeless on death row. In the play, Darrow himself recounts his upbringing, his marriages, his dynamic career, and his most challenging courtroom encounters.
