All the Way

Main Stage Drama

Playwright: Robert Schenkkan

November, 1963. An assassin’s bullet catapults Lyndon Baines Johnson into the presidency. A Shakespearean figure of towering ambition and appetite, this charismatic, conflicted Texan hurls himself into the passage of the Civil Rights Act—a tinderbox issue emblematic of a divided America—even as he campaigns for re-election in his own right, and the recognition he so desperately wants.

Recommended for teen/adult audiences. The language is rough, however the language and action of the play is drawn from the official record, memoirs and verified recollection of the people depicted.
