A Drama by Jerome Lawrence & Robert E. Lee
“A masterpiece! To see a play once, twice, three times, and each time to leave the theatre as deeply moved, as enlightened, as lifted up, as magnificently entertained—this is the test!” – Columbus, Ohio, Citzen
This is the play that has as its genesis the events of the famous Scopes trial and its controversial arguemnt as to the origin of man! One of outstanding dramas of our time. The portrait it draws of an explosive episode in American culture, vigorously written, remains one of the most stirring plays in recent years, yet retains its folk flavour and spiritual awareness.
