Description

Creation or evolution? Faith or Science? These are the issues on trial in one of the greatest dramas of the 20th Century. Based on the events of the famous Scopes Monkey Trials, Inherit the Wind pits two hot-shot lawyers against one another as the state prosecutes a teacher for discussing the theory of evolution in the classroom.
