Inherit The WindInherit The Wind

This is the play that had its genesis in the events of the famous Scopes Trial in which the teaching of creationism came head to head against the teaching of scientific fact. Written during the height of the McCarthy Era, the play highlights the bravery it takes to stand up for what is right, while also pinpoints the loneliness of such an endeavor. As is played out through the course of the show, the title of the play comes from the Book of Proverbs in the Old Testament: "He that troubleth his own house shall inherit the wind; and the fool shall be servant to the wise at heart."
