Description

An illuminating guide to the Jerome Lawrence and Robert E. Lee play, this teacher favorite dramatizes the evolution-versus-creationism debate. It pits fundamentalist Matthew Harrison Brady against gifted orator Henry Drummond in the courtroom trial of a high school science teacher accused of teaching evolution. The townspeople in this play also dramatize what freedom of thought -- as well as "the right to be wrong" -- truly mean.
