Mountain:The Journey of Justice Douglas

Keith Baker
Bristol Riverside Theatre, located at 120 Radcliffe Street, Bristol, Pa, is presenting Mountain: The Journey of Justice Douglas through November 22. Justice William O. Douglas ( Keith Baker) spent over 36 years on the Supreme Court and served longer than any other justice. He remained controversial throughout his term. .The first act of the production  begins in January, 1980 and ends in the years between 1898-1922. The first scene in Act 2 covers the years between 1910-1922 and Act 2 ends in January, 1980 at the same point that the play begins.. Keith Baker does an outstanding job of portraying the various stages of Douglas’s life, from his mountain climbing days to his tough decisions on the bench to his failed marriages. Kenneth York and Sandy York play multiple roles and dart back and forth among them with finesse and panache. By far the most amazing part of the production is the lighting and projection design. Kudos to Lighting Designer Joe Doran and Projection Designer Caite Hevner Kemp for bringing us not only indoors, but the outside of the Supreme Court, mountains, avalanches,  and  night skies. The total effects are breathtaking. For more information or tickets to this production call 215-785-00100 or visit online at
