After Darwin
After Darwin
"After Darwin is probably the richest, most absorbing piece that the author of Our Country's Good has yet written…A play fired up by the exhilaration of discovery and the possibilities of art." —The Guardian
By Timberlake Wertenbaker.

Cast: 3m., 1w. "Timberlake Wertenbaker's brain-teasing new play addresses the ruling metaphor of our times: the survival of the fittest. She does it in the most direct way possible, by dramatizing the development of Darwin's ideas on the origins and survival of species during his voyage on the Beagle in the 1830s and the conflict between him and Fitzroy, his captain and a literalist believer in the Bible. But the metaphor is underlined by casting this as a play within a play, where the actor playing Darwin has no interest beyond personal survival and the actor playing Fitzroy is weakened by principle. Their rehearsals are directed by an east European refugee who knows more about survival than they ever will." (Sunday Times, London)" Flexible staging.
