North Coast Rep announces filmed production of TRYING. Based on playwright Joanna McClelland Glass’s experience as an assistant to a famed Attorney General and Chief Judge at Nuremberg, Francis Biddle, during the final year of his life. The play is a riveting portrayal of two wildly different personalities struggling to understand each other. TRYING presents a respectful snapshot of American history. Told with great humor, compassion and insight, this is powerful, compelling theatre.
"Comic and touching." - The New York Times
"Trying is a portrait of generational reconciliation. It is enormously bracing theatre." - New York Daily News
