By Joanna McClelland Glass

Judge Frances Biddle is a crusty 80 year old who was Attorney General under Franklin Roosevelt. He just can’t seem to find the right person to assist him in organizing the papers and experiences of a brilliant career. Many have tried, but none have succeeded. Just as he decides that there’s no one who can meet his expectations, Sarah Schorr, a 25 year old, plain-spoken girl from Saskatchewan, arrives at his office. Biddle’s wife hopefully has finally found someone with the gumption to handle this curmudgeon? Set in Georgetown, Washington, DC, in November 1967, Trying is based on playwright Joanna McClelland Glass’ experience working for Judge Biddle. It is a heart-warming story of friendship, understanding and mutual respect.
