Inherit the Wind
Inspired by the Scopes “Monkey” Trial of 1925, Inherit the Wind by Jerome Lawrence and Robert E. Lee is a classic courtroom drama between two great lawyers who argue the case of a science teacher accused of the crime of teaching Darwin’s theory of evolution. The ethics and issues at the heart of this work-particularly intellectual freedom-are just as relevant today as they were when the play premiered in 1955. Veteran Chicago actor and director, and former Next Theatre artistic director, Steve Pickering directs this towering 20th century classic. The production features OPFT Artistic Director Jack Hickey.
