Trying tells "the story of the internationally known Francis Biddle, Attorney General under President Franklin D. Roosevelt and Chief Judge of the Nuremberg trials, when Biddle is 81 years old and trying to put his life in order. Elegant, but sharply cantankerous, he struggles with the inevitability of his age and failing health." When a 25 year old new secretary is forced upon, the history of his life pours forth. Originally producced by the Victory Gardens Theatre, Sandy Shinner helms this production at the Promedane Theatre, as she did in Chicago.
Seen at left are Shinner and Raul Esparza, Louis Zorich and playwright Glass. Below, Glass, Weaver and Shinner arrive at the Palm West restaurant on West 50th Street for the opening night reception.
