RFK: The Journey to Justice, a new play co-commissioned by Stanford Lively Arts for the acclaimed radio theater company, L.A. Theatre Works, chronicles the transformation of Robert F. Kennedy from initial indifference and ambivalence toward Martin Luther King, Jr. and the Civil Rights Movement to his role as a crusader and champion for social justice.  During this pre-performance conversation with members of the L.A. Theatre Works Company, we will look at this behind-the-scenes story of a high-stakes political drama that dared the country and its citizens to look into the mirror and change.

L.A. Theatre Works will perform RFK: A Journey to Justice at Stanford's Dinkelspiel Auditorium on Wednesday, January 27 at 8:00pm.  Learn more about this performance by going here.
