Directed by Gabriel Hainer Evansohn, the production will begin performances July 13 with an official opening July 17. Never the Sinner will end its brief run July 28.
The play, according to press notes, "depicts the story of Leopold and Loeb — two young millionaire lovers who in 1924, while attending university of Chicago, murdered a 14-year-old boy simply for the 'thrill of it.' This cinematic play chronicles the dark, deranged yet hauntingly tender world of Leopold and Loeb's relationship against the media's sensational coverage of what was then, 'the trial of the century.' A trial which is now equally famous for Clarence Darrow's legendary defense of the boys in the face of city-wide cries for execution."
The cast includes Teddy Bergman as Leopold, Stephen Squibb as Loeb, E.C. Kelly as Clarence Darrow and Derek Manson as Robert Crowe with Chris Cole, Dan Cozzens, Meredith Holzman, Keith Lubeley and Hugh Sinclair.
The design team includes Eric Southern (scenic), Carl Faber (lighting), Jessica Pabst (costumes), Joshua Higginson (sound) and Lauren DiGuilio (props).
