Written by David Morton, this ambitious collaboration is a visually stunning reimagining of Charles Darwin’s voyage on the HMS Beagle.
It’s brought to life by an award-winning cast and over 30 astonishing custom-built puppets, played out before projected galaxies and maps, with a rich original music score by Lior and Tony Buchen.
Join Darwin on his near five-year journey, encountering the wildlife that inspired his theory of evolution.
