ABOUT THE SHOW...
Inherit the Wind is a play that has its genesis in the events of the famous Scopes "Monkey" Trial. Written as a hidden critique of the then-current McCarthy hearings, its contemporary relevance keeps it one of the most outstanding dramas of our time.
Written by Jerome Lawrence and Robert E. Lee with its first production in 1955, Inherit the Wind draws a riveting portrait of an explosive episode in American culture. The piece remains one of the most stirring plays in the American catalog.
The critics talk about the play: "Magnificently writtenone of the most exciting dramas of the last decade." NY News. "A tidal wave of a dramaMore than any other play in memory based on history and aiming at a contemporary parallel, INHERIT THE WIND makes its point immediately applicable." NY World-Telegram & Sun. "Brillianta colorful, picturesque and absorbing exciting essay in dramatic Americana" NY Post. "A masterpiece. This is the test: to see a play once, twice, three times. And each time to leave the theatre as deeply moved, as enlightened, as lifted up, as magnificently entertained. And as convinced that it is one of the truly great American dramas of this century." Scripps-Howard.
