TCC Theatre presents, “Inherit the Wind” by Jerome Lawrence and Robert E. Lee

This lively courtroom drama dives into the 1925 Scopes "Monkey" Trial. The play is set in the town of Hillsboro and follows the trial of a young teacher, Bertram Cates, who is accused of violating a state law by teaching Charles Darwin's theory of evolution in a public school. Two famous lawyers, Henry Drummond and Matthew Harrison Brady, represent the opposing sides. The trial becomes a clash between science and religion, modernity and tradition, and freedom of thought and dogmatic beliefs. The play explores these themes while also delving into the personal relationships and emotions of the characters involved. The trial takes unexpected turns, challenging the beliefs of both the characters and the audience. "Inherit the Wind" raises questions about intellectual freedom, the role of religion in society, and the tensions between progress and conservatism.

Tickets: $20 adults and $10 faculty, staff, students, seniors, TCC alumni and military.
