SHORT + SWEET THEATRE
The Origin of the Species
Week 1 | 12 – 16 September
Charles Darwin lives his life in the light. He discovers, explains and reasons. Emma Darwin lives her life in the dark. She follows her heart, her instinct and her feelings. But when presented with the unimaginable and unexplainable, how can one of sciences greatest minds explain away, what demands to be felt?
