The Alternative Truth Project’s theater presentation, “Inherit the Wind,” will be presented in our Sanctuary on Friday, March 31 at 7:30 PM.

Diane Breeser directs this reading, a dramatized version of the 1925 Scopes Trial, pitting religion against the teaching of evolutionary science in a Tennessee public school. Facing off against each other are two legendary Americans: one-time Secretary of State William Jennings Bryan—the attorney prosecuting the teaching of evolution in the classroom– and famed trial attorney Clarence Darrow, serving as defense attorney for Mr. Scopes’ teaching of evolution.

Cast members include distinguished La Crosse Community theater actor Brandon Harris, La Crosse storytellers Sara Slayton & Terry Visger, and our own Rita Koch-Thometz.

You’ll want to come early to get a front-row seat. The opening Alternative Truth production drew a large audience at the Pump House. Admission is free at the door on a first-come, first-served basis.
