Based on the true events of the famous ‘Scopes Monkey Trial’ in 1930’s America, a small town schoolteacher is arrested when it is discovered that he is teaching his pupils the theory of evolution. He is accused of speaking out against the Bible and being a ‘free thinker’, corrupting children’s minds. There follows a trial of such passion and conviction that there has never been any courtroom drama to better this incredibly moving piece of theatre. Two of America’s most revered lawyers pit their wits and examine their own beliefs, while a town is exposed to international scrutiny and consequently torn asunder in the search for truth and justice. A play of power, humanity and universal truth.
