Theatre Artists Studio presents a dynamic restaging of this timeless, forever relevant, American classic that defines our right to freedom of thought and a society that values diversity and personal beliefs—even when those beliefs are different from our own.
Under the Constitution of these United States, "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness." Neither our states nor our federal government can prohibit or restrict our liberty to think or believe what we will. But, it's up to us to decide what we choose to believe: do we blindly hold onto tradition, or do we explore the possibilities of discovery?
Still, this is not a story about traditionalists against free thinkers. It's not about religion against science. It's not about Darwin against God.
It's about freedom and wondering, about questions and seeking truth. It's about tolerance and compassion. It's about the constantly searching and testing impulse of the human mind.
