“Inherit the Wind,” by Jerome Lawrence & Robert E. Lee. Prize-winning courtroom drama based on the Scopes “monkey trial” of 1925 when a schoolteacher was put on trial for breaking a Tennessee law banning the teaching of Darwin’s theory of evolution. Two giants of the legal realm, Clarence Darrow and William Jennings Bryan were brought in to argue the case. "Inherit the Wind" brilliantly dramatizes this courtroom clash of ideas and ideals: science vs literal biblical teachings on the origin of mankind. It's a clash that continues today.

All 5 roles (2 men and 3 woman) are open.
Lyman Wyeth: (Late 50’s to late 60’s): Kind and gentle patriarch. A Hollywood B actor with some celebrity and charm who turned that into political influence. He is conservative but with a sense of humor about himself and a deep love for his family. “He is sturdy in the way of old Californians of a particular type.”
Polly Wyeth: (Late 50’s to late 60’s) Lyman’s wife. Graceful and acerbic matriarch. She has been active for decades in the Republican Party. She is deeply devoted to the preservation of her social standing, her family and the health of her husband. “Elegant and forthright and whip-smart.”
Brooke Wyeth: (Mid 30’s to 40’s) Lyman and Polly’s adult daughter. She is a professional writer who has been living in New York after a mental breakdown. Her tortured relationship with her family has centered on her opposing Liberal political views. “An attractive and dry woman.”
Trip Wyeth: (Late 20’s to mid 30’s) Brooke’s brother. Witty and self-effacing. He is a TV producer for reality TV – in a family obsessed with his intellectual, older sister’s mental health. He assumes the role of second banana with grace. “A bright, funny man.”
Silda Grauman: (late 50’s to early 70’s) Polly’s sister. Creative, fragile, and funny. A former B movie writer, and the Bohemian, polar opposite of her sister. She is fresh out of rehab and repays the support of the conservative Wyeths by joining Brooke in some liberal needling of her parents. “A mess. No makeup, hair disheveled. She wears a muumuu and carries a pill case marked with the days of the week.”
