Roger Brewin has been portraying Clarence Darrow in his trademark rumpled suit and Borsalino hat since 1981. Brewin has revisited many of those same congregations, and has also taken Darrow to schools, libraries, literary clubs, conventions and numerous other venues. He has also introduced the lawyer to a medium he never knew -television, appearing on broadcasts in Rockford, Naperville, Joliet and Chicago. He has portrayed the “defender of the damned” in over 200 performances, on more than a hundred platforms in a dozen states.
