One of the most outstanding dramas of our time, Inherit the Wind is a fictional dramatization of the notorious 1925 Scopes “Monkey” trial when a Tennessee teacher was jailed for teaching Darwin’s Theory of evolution to his pupils. “The portrait of [Inherit the Wind] draws of an explosive episode in American culture, vigorously written by Jerome Lawrence and Robert E. Lee, remains as fresh as it ever was. One of the most stirring plays in recent years retains its folk flavor and spiritual awareness.” - NY Times. Directed by Harry Friedman
