The Scopes trial, over the right to teach evolution in public schools, reaffirmed the importance of intellectual freedom as codified in the Bill of Rights. The trial, in a small-town Tennessee courtroom in 1925, set the stage for ongoing national debates over the separation of church and state in a democratic society debates that continue to this day.

This production stars Mike Farrell as Clarence Darrow, Edward Asner as William Jennings Bryan, and Sharon Gless as the narrator. The play is based on original sources and the trial transcripts.
