 Details:

The Scopes Festival features a musical reenactment of the famous Scopes Trial in Dayton, TN. Monkey in the Middle: The Scopes Evolution Trial will bring that case to life once again in the courtroom where the trial happened between July 10 and 21, 1925.

Playwright Gale Johnson has taken dialogue from the trial transcript, and added a few lines to condense the eight-day trial into a play lasting approximately two hours. Actors portraying William Jennings Bryan, Clarence Darrow, District Attorney Tom Stewart and others repeat their arguments supporting Darwin or the Bible, majority or minority rights, parental control of schools and much more.

See the real story of the trial that put Dayton on the map. Come early, and you might even have a chance to serve on the jury!

Friday 7pm
Saturday 1pm & 6pm
Sunday 2:30pm

Tickets: $10
