UChicago Student Night: The Originalist

May 11

By John Strand
Directed by Molly Smith
with Associate Director Seema Sueko
Featuring Edward Gero as Antonin Scalia

When a liberal Harvard Law School graduate takes on a clerkship with Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, they confront one of the most polarizing Supreme Court cases in history and must prove how much passion for the law and risk it takes to defend one’s version of the truth. University of Chicago students are invited to enjoy FREE Jimmy John's after the performance.
