Trying: Peninsula Player Theatre
August 29 @ 8:00 pm
Judge Francis Biddle, who served as Attorney General for Franklin Roosevelt and as the chief American judge at the Nuremberg Trials, is now an arthritic man facing his own mortality. The refined and brilliant Biddle meets his new secretary, the young, tenacious Sarah, fresh from the Canadian prairie. We soon learn that Sarah is the latest in a line of secretaries who have not lived up to the expectations of the cantankerous judge. Through their time together, we see how strangers from diverse backgrounds at different points in their lives can grow to understand and even learn from one another. Trying is a moving yet funny portrayal of finding common ground.
