House and bar open at 7pm. Play begins at 8pm.
A teacher goes on trial for teaching evolution in school. It happened in 1925 in Tennessee at the Scopes Monkey Trial. Thirty years later, this play based on the trial debuted. It was written as a statement in support of intellectual freedom and against McCarthyism. With humor and soaring speeches, some drawn from the trial itself, the play captures a time in American history that we seem destined to repeat.
