The Big Deal: Dallas Theater Center Presents ‘Inherit The Wind’

by Ariana Vera 3 May 2017 8:32 AM

Enter this Big Deal for a chance to see Dallas Theater Center’s production of  “Inherit the Wind.”  The American theater drama made its world premiere right here in Dallas in 1955 at the Margo Jones theater-in-the-round at Fair Park.  The play, based on the infamous Scopes Trial, centers around a public high school teacher who gets arrested for teaching Darwin’s Theory of evolution in a small southern town. It culminates in a showdown between two powerhouse lawyers who face-off in court in a battle between science and faith. The DTC’s innovative and contemporary production of the classic, directed by Kevin Moriarty, makes the 62-year-old play just as timely today. Be the fortunate winner of this Big Deal and receive a pair of tickets to the May 21, evening performance at the Kalita Humphreys Theater.
