Broadway West Theatre Company presents the classic American drama "Inherit the Wind" by Jerome Lawrence and Robert E. Lee, directed by John Rutski, May 24 - June 22. A fictionalized account of the 1925 Scopes "Monkey" Trial, resulting in John T. Scopes' conviction for teaching Charles Darwin's theory of evolution to a high school science class, this is a colorful, picturesque and absorbing essay in dramatic Americana.

Regular ticket prices are $25 general and $20 for students, seniors and TBA members. Thursday, May 30, June 13 and 20 performances are $17 for everyone, with a bargain Thursday (no reservations - first come, first seat!) held on June 6 - all tickets $10. Brunch Sunday performances and opening night are $25 for everyone. All ticket prices include refreshments.
