Inherit the Wind
Inherit the Wind | Jerome Lawrence, Robert Edwin Lee
11 posts | 17 read | 4 to read
The accused was a slight, frightened man who had  deliberately broken the law. His trial was a Roman  circus. The chief gladiators were two great legal  giants of the century. Like two bull elephants  locked in mortal combat, they bellowed and roared  imprecations and abuse. The spectators sat uneasily  in the sweltering heat with murder in their hearts,  barely able to restrain themselves. At stake was  the freedom of every American. One of the most  moving and meaningful plays of our generation. "a  tidal wave of a drama." -- New York  World-Telegram And Sun

“Progress has never been a bargain. You have to pay for it. Sometimes I think there's a man who sits behind a counter and says, ‘All right, you can have a telephone but you lose privacy and the charm of distance. Mister, you may conquer the air but the birds will lose their wonder and the clouds will smell of gasoline.‘”

"It's the loneliest feeling in the world-to find yourself standing up when everybody else is sitting down. To have everybody look at you and say, 'What's the matter with him?' I know."

I guess courtroom drama is more dramatic when it's #hotinhere?

I present exhibit A. (I'm pretty sure the trial in To Kill a Mockingbird was during the summer and it was another sweltering courtroom.)

BarbaraBB Good one! And I think your right! 11mo

Play is over, to sold out crowds each night. Here is a view of beyond the bar in our courtroom, under blue light for a scene change. #PCTInherittheWind - such an incredible experience.

It‘s always lovely when you get the official transcript of the trial which inspired the play you are directing. Very cool stuff.

LeahBergen Cool! 1y
jlondon1963 I saw the play back in college and Abe Vigoda played Clarence Darrow. ACLU in St Louis had a after party to meet the actors. 1y

"I'm sorry if I offend you. But I don't swear just for the hell of it. You see, I figure language is a poor enough means of communication as it is. So we ought to use all the words we've got. Besides, there are damned few words that everybody understands." - Henry Drummond

Need to finish this tonight, should easily qualify as Halloween reading given the terrifyingly cult like nature of the creationists in it!
