Townspeople: Members of the Hillsboro community meet their champion, Matthew Harrison Brady. The play “Inherit the Wind” delves into the teaching of evolution and what that means to a community steeped in dogmatic belief in the Bible. Pictured (l-r) Tyler Tufts, Robert Payawal, Rachel Rominger, Scott Schwerdtfeger, Cameron Toney Will Oberholtzer and Ana Kormos.
Jerome Lawrence and Robert E. Lee’s “Inherit the Wind” will be performed by the Winters Theatre Company in March.
Based on the 1925 Scopes “Monkey Trial,” the play delves into the teaching of evolution in public school—an act against the law in Tennessee in 1925. The play examines concepts relevant and under attack today—the right to teach science as fact and not disputable opinion and how people respond when they believe their faith is being attacked. As the prologue to the play implies, “the play can happen at any time and at any place.”
