    Name: “A Search for Justice” performance at Dover Library
    Date: January 16, 2018
    Time: 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM EST
    Event Description:
    The Friends of the Dover Public Library are delighted to present a one-man show, “A Search for Justice”, featuring actor Stephen Collins, on Tuesday evening January 16, 2018 at 7pm.

    In this performance piece, the audience will hear the words of Abolitionist editor William Lloyd Garrison, and John Brown will tell you why he resorted to violence. Abraham Lincoln will deliver his oration at Gettysburg, and Thomas Hardy and other writers will comment on war and religion.

    These historical figures will examine timely issues of social, political, and religious justice. Can justice ever be defined or is it just an abstract concept? What is Truth? How do leaders, both political and religious, use language to motivate or dissuade people? Is violent action ever justified when all else fails? Is there ever be a “just war” or is conflict inherently unjust?
