MEDIA RELEASE: "Naked Darrow" Play

"Naked Darrow," a one-man play by nationally renowned Darrow portrayer Gary L. Anderson, is coming to Loucks Auditorium at the Salem Library This recent NYC Off-Broadway production is produced by the Oregonians for Alternatives to the Death Penalty (OADP) and the Clarence Darrow Foundation. Naked Darrow is a provocative look at our most hated and revered attorney, Clarence Darrow, as his great mind slips away.

The performance will take place at 6:30 PM on Wednesday, November 15th.

Darrow was best known for defending killers Leopold and Loeb and for defending science teacher John Scopes in the Scopes Monkey Trial. In this show, Darrow reveals his very private life, his trials, his personal demons and his jury-tampering charges. Personally, reckless and professionally fearless, Darrow now stubbornly faces his two greatest opponents: disease and death. Knowing the odds were against him to the end, he remained Clarence Darrow... an American Iconoclast.

Gary L. Anderson is the country's most lauded portrayer of Clarence Darrow, with his work characterized in newspapers across the country as "Anderson's Darrow is in the same league as Holbrook's Mark Twain." He is the CEO of the Clarence Darrow Foundation, and a member of the Screen Actors Guild. An award-winning stage actor, he has appeared in several television series and as Clarence Darrow in the documentary, Assassination: Idaho's Trial of the Century airing annually on PBS.
