WHEN SCIENCE AND FAITH COLLIDE, WHO WINS?
May 16 – June 18, 2017
When a public school teacher is arrested for teaching Darwin’s Theory of Evolution to his sophomore students, two powerhouse lawyers face off in a court of law. The nation watches as science and faith collide, bringing a small southern town to its knees. Inspired by the infamous Scopes Monkey Trial, DTC’s innovative, contemporary production of this classic American drama is as timely today as it was at the 1955 Dallas world premiere.
