Inherit the Wind at Compass Rose Theater
By Jerome Lawrence and Robert Edwin Lee
This intense and gripping drama brings to life the story of the Scopes "Monkey" trial. Henry Drummond, a noted lawyer and Matthew Harrison Brady, populist and evangelist, descend on a small southern town to argue the case of creationism versus evolution. The struggle of knowledge versus ignorance is an all too familiar theme today in life as well as art. This powerful and timely play reveals how scientific fact needs to be defended and honored, or it will perish and become mere fiction.
