Inherit the Wind - 1996 - Broadway Tickets, News, Info & More

In a small town courtroom and with the eyes of the nation upon them, two legal giants face off over a teacher's right to teach evolution to a high school class in this critically acclaimed drama based on the Scopes Monkey Trial. As rousing and relevant today as it was when it debuted in 1955, INHERIT THE WIND is an edge-of-your-seat riveting look at the age-old conflict between science and religion.

As a bonding between the two women develops, pasts and emotions are shared.  Bittersweet memories are brought to the surface, and their friendship is strengthened each time a plane leaves for its next destination.
