A Vampire Reflects pic 01

INHERIT THE WIND
by Jerome Lawrence and Robert Edwin Lee

Directed by Michael Lipp

Considered one of the great American plays of the twentieth century, Lawrence and Lee’s gripping, relevant drama is inspired by the famous 1925 Scopes ‘Monkey Trial’ when school teacher John Scopes stood accused of violating a Tennessee statute by teaching Darwin’s theory of evolution to his students. In this fictionalized account, two legal Titans confront each other when a close knit community puts freedom of thought on trial. A film version of the play, released in 1960 starring Spencer Tracy and Gene Kelly, received four Academy Award nominations.
(Rated PG)

Show Dates: March 11 - 26, 2011
