Eden Prairie Players seeks actors for their upcoming production of Inherit the Wind by Jerome Lawrence and Robert E. Lee

Synopsis: A dramatization of the famed "Scopes Monkey Trial" from the early 1900's. After a man teaches evolution in his classroom, violating a Tennessee law requiring the teaching of creationism, the trial becomes a national circus. As national reporters, big-city lawyers, and politicians with national ambitions descend on a town that's already largely made up it's mind, the literal and metaphorical temperature of the courtroom ratchets to a dangerous fever. One that will change the town, the law, and the nation forever. 

Directed by Michelle Schwantes
