19:30, Thu 10th December 2009 - Sat 12th December 2009 at Judith E. Wilson Drama Studio
A new play by Rani Drew about the human side of scientist Charles Darwin is to be performed in Cambridge. The play is centred on the crisis that confronts Darwin after the death of his favourite daughter Annie. As his wife and friends rally round Darwin to comfort him, the devastation he feels causes him to ask many questions about science and religion. The play reveals something of the man behind the great scientist whose insights into life on Earth have been celebrated in this anniversary year of the publication of The Origin of Species by Natural Selection.
The Man Behind Evolution will be played at the Judith E. Wilson Drama Studio, English Faculty, 9 West Road, Cambridge, on December 10th, 11th & 12th at 7.30 p.m. Admission is free but donations towards costs will be welcome. Enquiries & reservations: 01223-368231.
