Although the play is based on the famous Tennessee Scopes "monkey" trial, it is a fictionalized account.
Mill Mountain Theater has 2 excellent actors in the roles of antagonists Matthew Harrison Brady and Henry Drummond. Wayne Ballentyne is the highly religious Brady, a revered orator and statesman. Drummond is an admitted agnostic, a feared defense attorney seen by many as the devil himself. Drummond and his client Bertram Cates, played by John Holley, a young teacher who had the temerity to teach Darwin's Origin of the Species in his classroom take on not only brady, but the entire town. The courtroom scene is powerful and compelling. "Inherit the Wind" is directed by Jere Lee Hodgin and continues through March 8 at the Mill Mountain Theater.))
