Tony Award winners Christopher Plummer and Brian Dennehy star in the legendary 1955 drama, Inherit the Wind, written by Jerome Lawrence and Robert E. Lee, and directed by Tony Award-winner Doug Hughes. The play is a fictionalized retelling of the famous 1925 “Monkey Trial” in which science teacher John Scopes was tried and convicted for teaching Darwin’s theory of evolution, violating a Tennessee law that forbade teaching any theory that conflicted with the Biblical conception of Divine Creation.
Mr. Dennehy will play the role of attorney Matthew Harrison Brady (based on William Jennings Bryan), and Mr. Plummer will play attorney Henry Drummond (based on Clarence Darrow).
