ONE OF THE OLDEST & MOST SUCCESSFUL COMMUNITY THEATRES IN THE COUNTRY
The aging Dr. Arthur Wicksteed pursues his nubile patient, Felicity Rumpers. Wicksteed's wife Muriel lusts after the charming head of the BMA, Sir Percy Shorter. Shorter as well as being Wicksteed's old rival, turns out to be Felicity's father - the result of an under-the-table liaison during an air-raid with Lady Rumpers, her mother. Meanwhile, Wicksteed's spinster-sister Connie, ashamed of her flat-chestedness, has schemes of her own. Identities are mistaken, the wrong knockers admiringly fondled, and libidos burst out of enforced hibernation.

In a small Southern town, a school teacher, Bertram Cates, is about to stand trial. His offense: violating a state law by introducing to his students the concept that man descended from the apes, a theory of the naturalist Charles Darwin. The town is excited because appearing on behalf of the prosecution will be the famous Matthew Harrison Brady, a staunch foe of Darwinism and a Biblical scholar and 3-time presidential candidate, to teach the naive teacher Cates the error of his ways. A surprise is in store for Brady, however. The teacher's defense is to be handled by the equally well-known Henry Drummond, one of America's most controversial legal minds and a long-standing acquaintance and adversary of Brady. Taken from the Transcripts of the Scopes-Monkey Trial, this courtroom drama explores science, religion, and the eternal fight of one to denounce the other.
