CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020, work is underway to re-open safely. Some venues are showing on-line productions or outside productions - even a few covid safe internal ones and a number of tours and shows have been rescheduled for later in 2020 and throughout 2021. We are updating our listings as much as possible to reflect the changes as they are reported.


Inherit the Wind archiveIn the hot summer of 1925, the famous "Monkey Trial" took place in Dayton, Tennessee. A young teacher was accused of violating The Butler Act, which restricted the teaching of evolution in state-funded schools. The defence featured famous attorney Clarence Darrow, the prosecution starred the celebrated orator, populist, & three-time Democratic Presidential candidate Jennings Bryan. Nearly two hundred reporters descended upon the town. For the first time news of an American trial was broadcast by radio, and thousands of people went to Drayton to see the carnival for themselves. Thirty years later, Jerome Lawrence and Robert E. Lee dramatised these events into a play: Inherit the Wind. Now a classic of American theatre, it was also made into an acclaimed movie in 1960 - directed by Stanley Kramer and starring Spencer Tracy and Frederic March.
