Jerome Lawrence and Robert E. Lee’s “Inherit the Wind” will be performed by the Winters Theatre Company in March.   Based on the 1925 Scopes “Monkey Trial,” the play delves into the teaching of evolution in public school—an act against the law in Tennessee in 1925. The play examines concepts relevant and under attack today—the right to teach science as fact and not disputable opinion and how people respond when they believe their faith is being attacked.  As the prologue to the play implies, “the play can happen at any time and at any place.” The production will open on Friday, March 8 and run through Sunday, March 24; Friday and Saturday shows at 7:30 p.m., and Sunday shows at 2 p.m. at the Winters Community Center, 201 Railroad Avenue in Winters.   Tickets are $15 for the gala opening on Friday, March 8, which includes cheesecake, champagne, coffee, and water. The show on Saturday. March 9 is a benefit for Winters Friends of the Library; tickets for that show are $25, and include one drink (beer or wine) and dessert. For all other shows, ticket prices are $15 for adults, and $12 for seniors and children 12 and under. Purchase tickets on the Winters Theatre Company website at Questions should be directed to 530-795-4014 or .]]>
