ZACH Theatre will present the Texas premiere of The Great Society, the second of Robert Schenkkan’s LBJ plays exploring Texas’ own political mastermind and his memorable years in the White House.

Despite division over the Vietnam War and ongoing civil rights issues, Johnson championed the most ambitious legislative work – an end to poverty and racial injustice, education for all schoolchildren, healthcare for seniors, and voting rights – in his vision of a Great Society. In this political thrill ride, The Great Society examines who we are, asks how we got here, and dreams of how great we could yet become.
