The accused was a slight, frightened man who had  deliberately broken the law. His trial was a Roman  circus. The chief gladiators were two great legal  giants of the century. Like two bull elephants  locked in mortal combat, they bellowed and roared  imprecations and abuse. The spectators sat uneasily  in the sweltering heat with murder in their hearts,  barely able to restrain themselves. At stake was  the freedom of every American. One of the most  moving and meaningful plays of our generation .

    LibraryThing Review A dramatization of the famous Dayton Scopes “Monkey Trial”. This account is fictionalized, and takes some poetic license, but the trial scenes are relatively accurate. The play is compelling.
