One of the most moving and meaningful plays in American theatre--based on the famed Scopes Monkey Trial of 1925, in which a Tennessee teacher was tried for teaching evolution--now on Broadway starring Tony Award (R) Winners Christopher Plummer and Brian Dennehy, and Directed by Tony Award (R) Winner Doug Hughes The accused was a slight, frightened man who had deliberately broken the law. His trial was a Roman circus, the chief gladiators being the two great legal giants of the century. Locked in mortal combat, they bellowed and roared imprecations and abuse. The spectators sat uneasily in the sweltering heat with murder in their hearts, barely able to restrain themselves. At stake was the freedom of every American. Jerome Lawrence and Robert E. Lee were classic Broadway scribes who knew how to crank out serious plays for thinking Americans. . . . Inherit the Wind is a perpetually prescient courtroom battle over the legality of teaching evolution. . . . We re still arguing this case - all the way to the White House. - Chicago Tribune Powerful . . . a crackling good courtroom play . . . [that] provides two of the juiciest roles in American theater. - Copley News Service [This] historical drama . . . deserves respect. - The Columbus Dispatch
