March 2018

Emily Meinerding, Rachel; Scott Patrick Wilson, Burt

Inspired by the sensational Scopes Monkey Trial of 1925 in Dayton, Tennessee, this thrilling courtroom drama centers on the prosecution of a teacher who read about Darwin’s The Origin of Species to his science class from their biology book. The attention-grabbing trial becomes a boxing match for the two greatest legal giants of the century. The great storytelling of this classic is enhanced by its ties to actual historical characters, and this riveting drama rings with relevance to our culture’s struggle with the relationship between belief and science that continues to this day.
