>Review: Inherit the Wind by Jerome Lawrence

>Fast-paced, powerful, and engaging story about one of the trials of the century. Based on a true story, Inherit the Wind tells the tale of two “superstar” lawyers, battling over a schoolteacher’s imprisonment for including Evolution and Darwin’s text in his classroom. The trial takes place in rural Tennessee – the Bible Belt’s buckle. Though the play is brief, the drama and tension build, becoming almost alive -inhaling and exhaling as the pages turn. The characters are well-developed and demonstrative of their situations, without being grotesques. I truly believe this is an essential text for any aspiring educator and particularly beneficial for those practicing in less tolerant or progressive areas. A new favorite.

You don’t start out writing good stuff. You start out writing crap and thinking it’s good stuff, and then gradually you get better at it. That’s why I say one of the most valuable traits is persistence. Octavia E. Butler
