Event Description

The graduating students of the School of Performing Arts at the University of Wales Trinity Saint David present Inherit the Wind.

Democracy, free speech and education have an elated pedestal within our perceived list of pre-requisite modern day essentials. How often do we analyse the effectiveness of these essentials?

The impact of the Leveson Inquiry will undoubtedly have an impact on our perception of the world from 2013. What exactly is our relationship with the press? What influence does our legal system have on the way we live our daily lives? Do we need to question our understanding and relationship with 'democracy' for the 21st century? What indeed is our spiritual future?

'Inherit the Wind' draws upon the 1925 Scopes trial in Tennessee to present a court case that puts the very understanding of human existence on trial. Our past and futures are dissected during a trial that questions the very fabric of our society, beliefs, aspirations and potential. There has never been a court case like it. The ramifications are still reverberating and remain largely unresolved. It will take more than a jury to resolve this predicament.

The drama is given as a fictional account drawn from the facts of the actual trial. Time is summer; not too long ago. The place; a small town.
