In a quintessential American restaurant, two people meet, fall in love and begin the messy process of creating a life together. From birth to that inevitable last course and every corn dog, calamari and Cadillac margarita in between, a potluck of characters' lives fly by like short order fare as five generations experience joy, heartache, love and loss. Expect humor and heartache in this award-winning off-Broadway hit by Dan LeFranc (Sixty Miles to Silver Lake), which earned him the 2010 New York Times Outstanding Playwright Award. Learn More
Based on the controversial 1925 Scopes Monkey Trial, Inherit the Wind follows the trial of a high school science teacher who has been arrested for reading Darwin’s The Origin of Species to his class. As the tiny, obscure town of Hillsboro hosts the “trial of the century,” what happens on stage evolves into one of the greatest courtroom dramas in theatre history. The playwrights note: “Inherit the Wind is not about the theory of evolution versus the literal interpretation of the Bible. It assaults those who would constrict any human being’s right to think, to teach, to learn. Our major theme is ‘the dignity of the individual human mind’ … Humanity is on trial. Anyone who would limit thought is on trial.”
