April 9th, 1865. General Lee sits alone in the front parlor of Wilmer McLean’s home, moments before his meeting with General Grant. The surrender of the Army of Northern Virginia is drawing near. After four years of brutal fighting, the hopes of the Confederacy are vanquished. Robert E. Lee - Shades of Gray transports the audience into the mind of General Lee; his most personal thoughts and memories play out before you. Through the intimate storytelling of the one-man show, the complex realities of America’s greatest tragedy unfold. Understand why General Lee, a deeply religious man who opposed slavery and was sworn to uphold the Constitution, rejected Lincoln’s offer to command Union forces in favor of defending his beloved Virginia.

The play was meticulously researched and written by Los Angeles stage, television, and film veteran Tom Dugan. Just as his plays Frederick Douglass and Simon Wiesenthal, Shades of Gray is a tour de force never to be forgotten.
