One of the great American dramas of the 20th century,
INHERIT THE WIND is as rousing and relevant today as it was in 1955. Two great lawyers face off in a small-town courtroom with the eyes of an entire nation upon them. The accused? A high school teacher. His crime? Teaching evolution. Loosely based on the real-life Scopes Monkey Trial, INHERIT THE WIND is an edge-of-your-seat legal drama and a riveting look at the age-old conflict between science and faith.
