Oregon State University Theatre’s 2017-2018 Season: In the Public Eye, begins with the classic American courtroom drama, Inherit the Wind, inspired by the historic 1925 Scopes Monkey Trials, and written by Jerome Lawrence and Robert E. Lee. Performances will run on the Withycombe Hall Main Stage November 9, 11, 16, and 17 at 7:30 pm and November 12 and 19 at 2:00 pm. Withycombe Hall is located at 30th and Campus Way on the Oregon State University Corvallis Campus.


This exciting fictionalized account of the historical case involving a young teacher’s arrest for teaching evolution takes place in the small town of Hillsboro. The arrest and subsequent trial sparked a heated debate between religious Fundamentalists and evolutionists. Director Nate Bush, OSU Theatre instructor remarks, “On the surface Inherit the Wind concerns the battle between creationism and evolution, religion versus science. However, a deeper conflict exists underneath about the freedom of thought.”
