The play is called Inherit the Wind. There is also an older movie version if you're interested in seeing it. It's about the Scopes Monkey Trial and the teaching of evolution in schools. Short summary of the real life basis--there was a law in a small town forbidding the teaching of evolution in schools, and some guy broke it, and they arrested him for it. The play talks about the right and freedom of thought, and it's pretty interesting. Some of the characters put down the religious in the town, but the play itself doesn't discredit religion or the Bible. The main theme is to not have blind faith but to think for yourself, educate yourself, and then decide what to believe in or not. I play Rachel, the daughter of the preacher and love interest to the guy on trial. Throughout the play I am convinced that Bert (on trial) must be wrong because a lot of smart, important people say he is. But in the end, I read for myself what Darwin says about evolution and leave the town behind. Rachel doesn't necessarily believe it, but she does read it for herself.
There are a couple of scenes where I really have to break down on stage, so that will be something I have to work at a little, I used to have a hard time crying on stage, but I'm more hormonal now and I think tears might come a little easier.
Anyway, that's my biggest news. I do want to write some about Christmas with Jordan's family, but that is for another night.
