INHERIT THE WIND

This courtroom drama is based on the 1925 Scopes "Monkey Trial," in which a Tennessee teacher was charged with teaching that man evolved from apes, instead of state-mandated Creationism. The drama contains a powerful confrontation between a character based on William Jennings Bryan, who believes only what he reads in the Bible, and another based on Clarence Darrow, who defends science and open intellectual inquiry.

Although the conflict in this play, based on a real event, took place in 1925, it could easily be lifted from the current headline, "American Students: Should They Be Taught Intelligent Design or Evolution?"
