A pair of legal giants go head-to-head in this gripping courtroom drama inspired by the historic Scopes "monkey trial." A masterpiece of American theater, Inherit the Wind focuses on a small-town school science teacher who's put on trial for teaching evolution, and the subsequent courtroom clash between friends and rival attorneys Drummond and Brady, standing in for the real trial's William Jennings Bryan and Clarence Darrow. The play first hit the stage in 1955, but the passionately argued issues of science vs. faith are still amazingly timely. Inherit the Wind has been adapted into several films, including the acclaimed 1960 version directed by Stanley Kramer and starring Spencer Tracy, Fredric March and Gene Kelly. Learn More
During the war Joe Keller and Steve Deever ran a machine shop which made airplane parts. Deever was sent to prison because the firm turned out defective parts, causing the deaths of many men. Keller went free and made a lot of money. The twin shadows of this catastrophe and the fact that the young Keller son was reported missing during the war dominate the action. The love affair of Chris Keller and Ann Deever, the bitterness of George Deever returned from the war to find his father in prison and his father’s partner free are all set in a structure of almost unbearable power. The climax showing the reaction of a son to his guilty father is a fitting conclusion to a play electrifying in its intensity.
