The Origin of Species... - 17th Sep 2018

The Origin of Species... Event Image

The Origin of Species... tells the remarkable story of how Charles Darwin came to discover the secrets of evolution, and why it took him over twenty years to pluck up the courage to publish his theory. The show is packed with big ideas, terrible puns, brilliant physical comedy and six cracking original songs about everything from blasted boring barnacles to the perils of marrying your cousin. Part 1 of John Hinton’s multi-award-winning Scientrilogy of musical comedies, which also includes last year’s Hurst Festival favourite The Element in the Room about Marie Curie.

“Remarkably inventive, thoroughly entertaining...Science can rarely have been so fascinating and never so much fun.” - The Stage

“Comic genius...Grown-ups will love it. Kids will adore it. A gem.” - ***** Broadway Baby

“John Hinton is an absolute joy... This guy would get anyone interested in science.” - **** Adelaide Theatre Guide
