“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.

The story: 15-year-old Christopher has an extraordinary brain: He is exceptional at mathematics but ill-equipped to interpret everyday life. He has never ventured alone beyond the end of his road, he detests being touched, and he distrusts strangers. Now it is 7 minutes after midnight, and Christopher stands beside his neighbor’s dead dog, Wellington, who has been speared with a garden fork. Finding himself under suspicion, Christopher is determined to solve the mystery of who murdered Wellington, and he carefully records each fact of the crime. But his detective work, forbidden by his father, takes him on a thrilling journey that upturns his world.
