Mr Darwin's Tree

St John's College Old Divinity School, All Saints Passage, CB2 1TP

The Faraday Institute are delighted to be bringing a performance of the highly acclaimed play, Mr Darwin’s Tree, to the Cambridge Science Festival 2019. Written by Murray Watts this show was commissioned by the think tank Theos in 2009 for the bicentenary of Darwin’s birth and premiered in Westminster Abbey.

Andrew Harrison’s compelling 75-minute solo performance focuses on the relationship between the agnostic Charles Darwin and his Christian wife, Emma, and takes us on a fascinating journey through Darwin’s life and though some of his own exploration of questions of science, faith, love and human destiny.

A panel discussion will follow.
