A new theatre in the Jerwood Gallery at the Natural History Museum will be unveiled for the European premiere of award-winning drama The Wider Earth. The play, about the story of a young Charles Darwin, will then run for a limited season.
Join the 22-year-old Darwin on HMS Beagle's daring voyage to the far side of the world, and discover the gripping story behind one of the most important discoveries in history.
The Wider Earth features a cast of seven, remarkable puppetry, an original score and cinematic animations to bring to life uncharted landscapes in the theatrical event of 2018.
This is a partnership project between Trish Wadley Productions, Dead Puppet Society and the Natural History Museum.
