Inherit the Wind Overturned by Design by Don Milne
A play in three acts Time: Summer. Not too far from now. Place: A small New England town Inherit The Wind Overturned by Design is a mirror to the 1955 play Inherit the Wind by Jerome Lawrence and Robert E. Lee. Washed up politician Gordon Albert (think Al Gore) is brought in the prosecute the case against a school teacher defended by Nicole Duran (think Ann Coulter). In the original play, the public schools taught Creationism and the challenge was Darwinism. In this new century, the public schools teach Darwinism and the challenge is Intelligent Design. This play follows the same structure with completely new dialogue (except where original quotes from the actual Scopes trial are used). It purposefully uses similar characters in the same situation to show the ironic position of Darwinism today.
