33 pages32 minutes


The play is set in a very small town of Hillsboro. Most of the people know each other there. They go to the same church and have same beliefs.

When Bert Cates is jailed, they gather together to condemn him. They don’t like a person who gives a different opinion from their’s.

Danger of a limited perspective is one of the major themes of the play. The townspeople do not like the person who is different or an outsider. In the case of Cates, they unite and try to defend their belief. Cates happens to have taught evolution to his students.
