Inherit The Wind

By: Jerome Lawrence and Robert Edwin Lee

Show Description:
Inspired by the Scopes “Monkey Trial” of 1925, this explosively gripping play follows the events surrounding a young high-school teacher who is arrested for teaching Darwin’s theory of evolution. One of the finest court-room dramas ever written (by two local authors, from Cleveland and Elyria), this American theater classic premiered in 1955 at the height of the McCarthy era but its central theme, the right to think, still resonates today.
