By Head-Royce School (other events)

4 Dates Through Nov 10, 2018

The Head-Royce Fine Arts Department is proud to present the classic courtroom drama, Inherit the Wind.

In the 1920s, Tennessee schoolteacher Bertram Cates is put on trial for violating the Butler Act, a state law that prohibits public school teachers from teaching evolution instead of creationism. Drawing intense national attention in the media with writer E. K. Hornbeck reporting, two of the nation's leading lawyers go head to head: Matthew Harrison Brady for the prosecution, and Henry Drummond for the defense.

We hope you will join the Upper School students for a compelling performance you won't soon forget!
