Inherit the Wind

Auditions:  TBD
Performances:  TBD

At the courthouse in Hillsboro, a small Southern town, Bertram Cates is behind bars, awaiting trial for teaching his students about Darwin’s theory of evolution. Matthew Harrison Brady, a famous former Presidential candidate, comes to Hillsboro to argue the case against Cates. Henry Drummond, a famous progressive lawyer, travels to Hillsboro from Chicago to defend Cates. This is the play that had its genesis in the events of the famous Scopes trial in which the teaching of creationism came head to head against the teaching of scientific fact.
