About the Show: This is the play that has as its genesis in the events of the famous Scopes trial. One of the most outstanding dramas of our time. “The portrait it draws of an explosive episode in American culture, vigorously written by Jerome Lawrence and Robert E. Lee, remains as fresh as it ever was. One of the most stirring plays in recent years retains its folk flavor and spiritual awareness in an Arena Stage production. Bursting with vitality…Literature of the stage!” -NY Times. “Magnificently written…one of the most exciting dramas of the last decade.” -NY News. “A tidal wave of a drama…More than any other play in memory based on history and aiming at a contemporary parallel, INHERIT THE WIND makes its point immediately applicable.” -NY World-Telegram & Sun. “Brilliant…a colorful, picturesque and absorbing exciting essay in dramatic Americana…” -NY Post. “A masterpiece. This is the test: to see a play once, twice, three times. And each time to leave the theatre as deeply moved, as enlightened, as lifted up, as magnificently entertained. And as convinced that it is one of the truly great American dramas of this century.” -Scripps-Howard

Inherit the Wind is an American play by Jerome Lawrence and Robert E. Lee, which debuted in 1955. The story fictionalizes the 1925 Scopes “Monkey” Trial as a means to discuss the then-contemporary McCarthy trials. The debate over creationism versus evolution has contemporary resonance, as evidenced by the play’s numerous revivals and screen adaptations decades after its initial theatrical run.

War of the Worlds will be presented as a live radio broadcast on Halloween at the Janesville Performing Arts Center and simulcast on WCLO. Stage One is using the famous Mercury Theatre adaptation.

All roles are available:
Inherit the Wind: 21 men, 6 women, 2 boys, 1 girl, extras

About the Show: In October 1998, a twenty-one-year-old student at the University of Wyoming was kidnapped, severely beaten, and left tied to a fence in the middle of the prairie outside Laramie, Wyoming. His bloody, bruised, and battered body was not discovered until the next day, and he died several days later in an area hospital. His name was Matthew Shepard, and he was the victim of this assault because he was gay. Moisés Kaufman and fellow members of the Tectonic Theater Project made six trips to Laramie over the course of a year and a half, in the aftermath of the beating and during the trial of the two young men accused of killing Shepard. They conducted more than 200 interviews with the people of the town. Some people interviewed were directly connected to the case, while others were citizens of Laramie, and the breadth of the reactions to the crime is fascinating. Kaufman and Tectonic Theater members have constructed a deeply moving theatrical experience from these interviews and their own experiences in Laramie. THE LARAMIE PROJECT is a breathtaking collage that explores the depths to which humanity can sink and the heights of compassion of which we are capable.
