Disinherit the Wind

Featuring Post-Play Discussion with CSC Senior Fellows Jonathan Wells and John West

“INTENSE AND COMPELLING… extremely well acted… superbly written… and brilliantly directed.” –Ron Irwin, Santa Monica Observer and LA Post Examiner

“FASCINATING… a splendid cast.” –Neal Weaver, Stage Raw

Join Center for Science and Culture (CSC) Senior Fellows Jonathan Wells and John West on April 9 for an afternoon in Hollywood to see Disinherit the Wind, a landmark new stage play that explodes the usual stereotypes about the debate over evolution. The play tells the story of a renowned neurobiologist with New Age sympathies who sues a prominent university for the right to challenge neo-Darwinian evolution. His argument: neo-Darwinian materialist thought has become a dogmatic orthodoxy that stifles free thought. This special performance will include a post-play discussion featuring CSC biologist Jonathan Wells, author of Icons of Evolution and the forthcoming Zombie Science; CSC Associate Director John West, author of Darwin Day in America; and actor and playwright Matt Chait.

Note to parents: The play contains some profanity, and it focuses on pretty high-level intellectual debates, so it probably isn’t appropriate for young children.
