Type: Audio

Two boys commit a murder – not for gain, or out of passion – just to do it, just to experience the thrill. Based on the infamous 1924 trial of Leopold and Loeb, Never the Sinner is their story, and the story of one of the most famous American lawyers and civil libertarians, Clarence Darrow. In the case of a lifetime, Darrow is called in to defend the monstrous and win freedom for the depraved.

Screenwriter of Skyfall, Gladiator and The Last Samurai, John Logan has worked with some of the world's most famous film directors and on some of the most successful films of recent years. For all that, however, he identifies himself first and foremost as a playwright. His career began that way, in Chicago, for ten years before he first took on a film. His 2009 play Red, first produced in the Donmar Warehouse, London, won the 2010 Tony, Drama League, Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle awards. Since then, with plays such as Peter and Alice, he has continued to attract stellar names – such as Judy Dench and Ben Wishaw – in productions of his plays.
