Logo for And On the Eighth Day

Created and written by Steven Brown and Michael Ullstrup, they transform the actual transcripts from the landmark 1925 Scopes "Monkey" Trial into a riveting, two-time award winning theatrical production. The confrontation between William Jennings Bryan and Clarence Darrow was reported by the press as a defeat for Bryan. According to one historian, "[a]s a man and as a legend, Bryan was destroyed by his testimony that day." But Bryan never delivered his closing arguments: Darrow admitted that Scopes broke the law and Bryan didn’t need to present his close. He did have them written and you will hear his thought-provoking views in this play. Everyone leaves the theater thinking. Audience Remarks "...the play was riveting." "...I loved the way they portrayed the Bible and story itself." "...I liked the way they tied modern intelligent design into the story." "...the fact that the play was really straight-forward and did not offend anyone."
