'Inherit the Wind' breathes life into history
by Barb Ulvilden

December 2 1966

"He that troubles his own house, inherits the wind." The issue in view in this line is not a single house or family but a whole town which blindly follows a man whose staunch beliefs not only destroyed the human right of reason, but also threatened the freedom of every American. This is the theme of MS's senior class play, Inherit the Wind.
Inherit the Wind is not just a theatrical production. No, it is much more than a play of three acts presented by students on the MS stage. It is based on an actual court case that ended by not only condemning a schoolteacher's beliefs, but by ironically confirming them to the world.
