Inherit The Wind

Performance Dates

Inherit the Wind

This intense and gripping drama brings to life the story of the Scopes “Monkey” trial.  Henry Drummond, a noted lawyer and Matthew Harrison Brady, populist and evangelist, descend on a small southern town to argue the case of creationism versus evolution.  The struggle of knowledge versus ignorance is an all too familiar theme today in life as well as art.   This powerful and timely play reveals how scientific fact needs to be defended and honored, or it will perish and become mere fiction.
