The Old Globe's world-famous Shakespeare Festival returns again this summer with a rotating repertory of three classic plays: William Shakespeare's "As You Like It" and "Richard III" and Jerome Lawrence and Robert E. Lee’s "Inherit the Wind." All three shows play under the stars in the Globe's beautiful outdoor theatre.
In "Inherit the Wind," two powerhouse lawyers face off in a small town with the eyes of an entire nation upon them when a schoolteacher is arrested for teaching Charles Darwin’s theories of evolution. When the issue goes to trial, the two attorneys must passionately confront questions of faith and science in a heated courtroom.
This fictional re-creation of the infamous Scopes Monkey Trial tackles issues that are every bit as relevant today as they were in 1925.
