THE STORY: The critics talk about the play: "Magnificently written…one of the most exciting dramas of the last decade." —NY News. "A tidal wave of a drama…More than any other play in memory based on history and aiming at a contemporary parallel, INHERIT THE WIND makes its point immediately applicable." —NY World-Telegram & Sun. "Brilliant…a colorful, picturesque and absorbing exciting essay in dramatic Americana…" —NY Post. "A masterpiece. This is the test: to see a play once, twice, three times. And each time to leave the theatre as deeply moved, as enlightened, as lifted up, as magnificently entertained. And as convinced that it is one of the truly great American dramas of this century." —Scripps-Howard.
This is the play that has as its genesis in the events of the famous Scopes trial. One of the most outstanding dramas of our time. "The portrait it draws of an explosive episode in American culture, vigorously written by Jerome Lawrence and Robert E. Lee, remains as fresh as it ever was. One of the most stirring plays in recent years retains its folk flavor and spiritual awareness in an Arena Stage production. Bursting with vitality…Literature of the stage!" —NY Times.
