Ronald Numbers, “Inherit the Wind” (1993)

  1. Neither play nor movie is really about the Scopes trial.

Inherit the Wind does not pretend to be journalism. It might have been yesterday. It could be tomorrow . . . Only a handful of phrases have been taken from the actual transcript of the famous Scopes trial.”

Introduction to the play, Jerome Lawrence & Robert E. Lee

“Like The Crucible, Inherit the Wind was a response to and a product of McCarthyism. In each play, the authors looked to American history for a parallel.”

Tony Randall, original Broadway cast member
