This play by Jerome Lawrence and Robert Edwin Lee is a story that fictionalizes the 1925 Scopes "Monkey" Trial as a means to discuss the then-contemporary McCarthy trials. In the 1920s, a Tennessee schoolteacher is put on trial for violating the Butler Act, a state law that prohibits public school teachers from teaching evolution instead of creationism. This draws intense national attention in the media, and causes two of the nation's leading lawyers go head to head.
