This original staged reading is adapted from the testimony and judge’s final decision interspersed with responses from everyday Americans to the 2005 Supreme Court case Tammy Kitzmiller, et al. v. Dover Area School District, et al, (the first U.S. federal court test of a public school policy that required the teaching of intelligent design.) The staged reading — which explores what science is and is not — is in celebration of Darwin Day, a yearly international festival of science and humanity in honor of Charles Darwin’s birthday on February 12. The script was adapted from the trial transcripts by Tim Broderick with assistance from Christina Calvit and directed by Karen Hoyer and Richard Gage.
