Written and Performed by Tom Dugan
Directed byJenny Sullivan

The room is empty but General Lee is not alone; posterity sits in judgment. How did the most trusted soldier in the United States Army become its greatest enemy? Why did this deeply religious father of seven, a man firmly opposed to slavery and secession, reject Lincoln’s offer to lead the Union Army and agree to fight for The Confederacy? Robert E. Lee - Shades of Gray is an epic tale that looks beyond the black-and-white pages of our history into the gray areas of America’s past. Critics call this show “a script for the ages” and an “extraordinary, stirring, tour de force performed by a brilliant actor.” Don’t miss this spellbinding journey written by and starring Los Angeles Drama Critics’ Circle Award-winner Tom Dugan (Wiesenthal).
