A PLAY BY JEFFREY SWEET
DIRECTED BY MEAGEN FAY

iTheatre Saratoga/AND Theatre company’s acclaimed production stars Broadway veteran Jeff McCarthy as the legendary Kunstler—a self-described “radical lawyer” and civil rights activist.  Famous for defending the Chicago Seven and his involvement at Attica and Wounded Knee, attorney William Kunstler had an outsize personality and a tremendous appetite for life. In this two-character drama, tensions flare when he arrives on a college campus to give a seminar. The brilliant young law student assigned to introduce him objects to his appearance and is determined to confront him. Has Kunstler finally met his match?

“Wise and revealing. A skillful script. An eye-opening history lesson. Jeff McCarthy seduces his audience. Mr. McCarthy has the Kunstler style down pat…”
– The New York Times
“William Kunstler, the legendary American civil-right attorney…rumpled, robust and fully realized way by Jeff McCarthy in “Kunstler,” a frequently funny bio- drama. “Kunstler” doesn’t try at all to force relevance to today. It doesn’t have to. The resonances are powerfully evident on their own.”
– Albany Times Union
This fascinating production provides a unique insight into Kunstler’s life and times. With superb staging this two hander features the impeccable acting of Jeff McCarthy. The show is timely as it addresses many of the civil liberty issues that Americans are facing today.”
– Broadway World
