By Jerome Lawrence & Robert Edwin Lee Through special arrangement with Dramatist Play Service The events that took place in Dayton, Tennessee, during the scorching July of 1925, are clearly only the genesis of this play, it has however an exodus entirely its own. Inspired by the “Scopes Monkey Trial,” where a schoolteacher was arrested for teaching Darwin’s theory of evolution. Attorney Henry Drummond is hired to defend teacher Bertram Cates against prosecuting attorney Matthew Harrison Brady. This high courtroom drama of Evolutionism versus Creationism is as relevant today as it was 91 years ago.
