History Plays


Final Installment! – August 20: “Bootlegger’s Terror: Tales from a Prohibition Courtroom”

We have enjoyed bringing you a previously recorded History Play each Thursday during #SafeatHome.  Each play was full of history, drama, and  always a few laughs. The plays featured prominent members of the Twin Cities legal community. They are produced by Landmark Center and recorded by SPNN. We hope to resume our History Plays in Fall, 2021.

They History Plays recall major events in a way only Landmark Center’s History Plays can – with lawyers and judges, taking on the roles of the corrupt and criminal!

Landmark Center’s History Play performance series is a theater program designed to bring to life many of the trials, court decisions, legal ramifications, and other related events that were relevant to Landmark Center when it was the Federal Courts Building.  Noted Twin Cities judges, legal practitioners, and academics often trade robes for costumes to bring the events to life.
