Summary

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.
