History Plays


Thursdays for #SafeAtHomeMN – July 23: “Lewis & Clark in Court” – PREMIER SCREENING!

Virtually visit Landmark Center and enjoy a previously recorded History Play each Thursday. For the next several weeks, a different play from Landmark Center’s annual fall production will be posted each Thursday. Each play is full of history, drama, and there’s always a few laughs. The plays feature prominent members of the Twin Cities legal community. They are produced by Landmark Center and recorded by SPNN.

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.
