Paul Giamatti, Elizabeth Marvel, David Strathairn, John Turturro, Kate Hudson and More For FOLCS

On October 28th at 6pm at Espace – 635 West 42nd Street a live public premiere of Theater of Law, featuring Paul Giamatti, Elizabeth Marvel, David Strathairn and John Turturro. This is part of their gala. To attend click here.

Before he was the first African-American Supreme Court Justice, Thurgood Marshall was an attorney for the NAACP. Marshall tells the story of one of his earlier cases. The year is 1940. The place is Connecticut. The case is The State of Connecticut v. Joseph Spell (Sterling K. Brown); a black chauffeur is accused by his white employer of sexual assault and attempted murder. Thurgood Marshall (Chadwick Boseman, portraying yet another iconic African-American) is not allowed to speak in trial, so the defense depends on Samuel Friedman (Josh Gad), a young Jewish attorney who has never tried a criminal case. What emerges from this situation is a story of racial injustice and the unlikely friendship that forms to combat it.

Join  director and producer Reginald Hudlin (Django Unchained) and actors Chadwick Boseman (Get On Up42, Captain America: Civil War), Sterling K. Brown (This Is Us, The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story), Josh Gad (Beauty and the BeastFrozen), and Kate Hudson (Almost FamousHow to Lose a Guy in 10 Days) for this timely conversation on America’s longstanding struggle for racial justice and the bonds of shared persecution that had, in the past, united African-Americans and Jews.

Theater of Law is a collaborative project between FOLCS and Theater of War Productions that presents a dramatic reading from Aeschylus’ Eumenides—an ancient Greek tragedy about the birth of trial by jury in the western world—for individuals interested in why vengeance was replaced by the rule of law and the role of the public in seeking justice.
