All Things Equal: The Life and Trials of Ruth Bader Ginsburg
Written by Tony Award Winning playwright
Supreme Court Justice “RBG” welcomes a friend of the family to her cozy chambers to convey, over the course of ninety fascinating and often funny minutes, a sense of her life and its many trials:
losing her mother the day before she graduated as valedictorian of her Brooklyn high school
… being one of only nine young women studying law at Harvard while also raising a daughter and helping her husband battle cancer
… fighting for women’s rights in the nineteen-seventies before condescending all-male courts
… and taking courageous stands for human rights as a voice of reason amid a splintering and increasingly politicized Supreme Court.
An evening with a great and compassionate icon of straight-thinking American justice emerges, an RBG who is not only “notorious” but victorious as she takes a stand for ordinary people facing the many challenges of a changing world.
