Inherit The Wind

by Jerome Lawrence and Robert E. Lee
April 16 & 17, 2004
The Stanley Theatre

Inherit the Wind by Jerome Lawrence and Robert E. Lee, is loosely based on the infamous “monkey” trials of 1925, disputing a state law that banned the teaching of evolution in the classroom, and a young teacher’s knowing infringement of that law. This twelve-day trial in the middle of a scorching July pits two titan lawyers representing the giants of religious fundamentalism and Darwinian science in a Herculean clash.
