About the book:

A meaningful play based on the Scopes Monkey Trial of 1925, in which a Tennessee teacher was tried for teaching evolution. The accused was a slight, frightened man who'd deliberately broken the law. His trial was a Roman circus, the chief gladiators being the two great legal giants of the century. Locked in mortal combat, they bellowed & roared imprecations & abuse. The spectators sat uneasily in the sweltering heat with murder in their hearts, barely restraining themselves. America's freedom was at stake. "Jerome Lawrence & Robert E. Lee were classic Broadway scribes who knew how to crank out serious plays for thinking Americans...Inherit the Wind is a perpetually prescient courtroom battle over the legality of teaching evolution... We're still arguing this case all the way to the White House."--Chicago Tribune "Powerful...a crackling good courtroom play...[that] provides two of the juiciest roles in American theater."--Copley News Service "[This] historical drama...deserves respect."--The Columbus Dispatch
