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

This is an excellent production of the John Patrick Hanley play. The actresses playing the pivotal roles of Sister Aloysius and Mrs. Muller were particular stand-outs. The performance space is reasonably comfortable although seating is rather close together. The venue is on Monmouth in the heart of the entertainment district south of Newport on the Levee, surrounded by a selection of good restaurants. Bravo to Falcon Productions for continuing its tradition of intimate but polished community theatre productions.
