On the Origin of Darwin

Description: The play tells the story of young Charles Darwin's voyage on the Beagle - his long-distance romance during the trip with Fanny Mostyn Owen, his conflicts and camaraderie with the ship's Captain and mates, and the human and animal discoveries he makes along the way that inevitably lead to his formulation of the theory of natural selection.
