"Inherit the Wind" is inspired by the real-life Scopes Monkey Trial of 1925. Set in the fictional town of Hillsboro, Tennessee, the play centers on the trial of a young schoolteacher, Bertram Cates, who is accused of teaching evolution in violation of state law.

The trial becomes a battleground between two titans of legal and ideological thought: Matthew Harrison Brady, a charismatic and devout fundamentalist representing the prosecution, and Henry Drummond, a renowned agnostic and civil liberties defender representing the defense. As the trial unfolds, the clash between science and religion, freedom of thought and censorship, takes center stage.

In the courtroom, personal and political tensions run high, with the entire town captivated by the spectacle. The play explores themes of intellectual freedom, the power of belief, and the struggle between progress and tradition. Through compelling dialogue and intense confrontations, "Inherit the Wind" delves into the complexities of human nature and the enduring quest for truth and justice.

ADULTS (18+):  This production will have opportunities for everyone in support of our commitment to diverse, inclusive casting.  Casting will be determined by the production team following auditions and may vary significantly from expectations.  We are excited to hear your interpretation of the lines and see what you bring to the characters at auditions.  You may be asked to read a character you hadn't considered or thought you wouldn't be considered for.  Many of the roles will be doubled or tripled, and we will be looking for actors who can inhabit different characters quickly and effectively.  There are even possibilities for non-speaking roles.

Sides and a perusal script will be available on or around March 6th.    

A small stipend will be provided.
