Inherit the Wind by Jerome Lawrence & Robert E. Lee read book description online

A classic work of American theatre, based on the Scopes Monkey Trial of 1925, which pitted Clarence Darrow against William Jennings Bryan in defense of a schoolteacher accused of teaching the theory of evolution

The accused was a slight, frightened man who had  deliberately broken the law. His trial was a Roman circus. The chief gladiators were two great legal giants of the century. Like two bull elephants locked in mortal combat, they bellowed and roared imprecations and abuse. The spectators sat uneasily in the sweltering heat with murder in their hearts, barely able to restrain themselves. At stake was the freedom of every American. One of the most moving and meaningful plays of our generation.

"A  tidal wave of a drama."—New York World-Telegram And Sun

    I can't believe there are no reviews of this American classic. It may be a bit heavy handed at times, but there is no denial that this play is as relevant today as it was when it premiered. A call to arms against dogma.
