WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Wheelock Family Theatre presents Inherit the Wind, by Jerome Lawrence and Robert E. Lee. Susan Kosoff directs. On a scorching July day in 1925, a trial began in Dayton, Tennessee, pitting two American intellectual greats, Clarence Darrow and William Jennings Bryan, against each other. John Scopes, a teacher, had violated the state's Butler Act, which prohibited the teaching of evolution in state-funded schools. The powerful, provocative play dramatizes the central conflict from this famous trial. Ultimately the debate is not between the theory of evolution and the literal interpretation of the Bible, but rather it is anyone who would limit human thought versus everyone's right to think, to teach, and to learn. Appropriate for audiences 12 and up.
