Woodward Park Shakespeare Festival

Inherit The Wind: Presented By Woodward Shakespeare Festival

by Terrance Mc Arthur



A teacher on trial for teaching evolution in the classroom. In this era of creationism/evolution controversies, it sounds improbable, but possible…but it did happen…in the 1920s. In 1955, Jerome Lawrence and Robert E. Lee turned the story of the Scopes Monkey Trial into a play, Inherit the Wind, which is the Woodward Shakespeare Festival’s 20th-century play for the 2013 season, playing through August 10, sandwiched between A Midsummer Night’s Dream and Julius Caesar. It’s a gently grayed look at the past, and a warning against thought control.
