Thurgood
In 1967, Thurgood Marshall became our first African-American Supreme Court Justice. Ted Pappas directs this exuberant one-man play which tells Thurgood's story in his own words – from humble beginnings as a waiter in Baltimore, to behind the scenes with leaders such as General MacArthur, Robert Kennedy and President Lyndon Johnson, to his triumphant rise to the highest court in the land. A journey of epic proportions, Thurgood by George Stevens, Jr., is an eye-opening, humorous, and uplifting portrait of a true American hero.
