Inherit the Wind and Murphey School Theater Grand Opening
Burning Coal Theatre—More than 82 years after teacher John Scopes was put on trial for presenting the findings of biologist Charles Darwin in a Tennessee high school science class, the issue is apparently still with us: In debates in May, June and September of last year, Republican and Democratic presidential candidates were grilled on their views on evolution. Is Inherit the Wind dated? You tell me.

The classic account of the historic face-off between attorney Clarence Darrow and charismatic sermonizer/ politician William Jennings Bryan opens a new chapter for Burning Coal Theatre Company. It inaugurates their new Murphey School theater space on Polk Street in Raleigh. For ticket information for the opening weekend gala, call 834-4001 or visit —Byron Woods
