ABOUT MR. DARWIN’S TREE
Written by noted playwright and director Murray Watts, and starring leading British film, TV and theatre actor Andrew Harrison, Mr. Darwin’s Tree has been described as “a brilliant, fast-paced and beautifully detailed performance” (“Church Times”). “BroadwayBaby” reported that “Mr. Darwin’s Tree explores not only science, but religion, the divine intricacies of the soul, and what it is to be human…. A rare treat.”
Hailed at the Edinburgh Festival as “an elegantly conceived, clever and highly informative performance, overflowing with gentle humor and charm” (“Three Weeks”), the play explores the life and work of Charles Darwin within the contexts of science, faith and family.
