The Origin of Species

The Origin of Species

Company: Tangram Theatre

Running Time: 1hr 10mins (interval on request)

Target Audience: 7+


This show tells the remarkable story of how Charles Darwin came to discover the secrets of evolution, and why it took him over twenty years to pluck up the courage to publish his theory. The show is packed with big ideas, terrible puns, brilliant physical comedy and six cracking original songs about everything from blasted boring barnacles to the perils of marrying your cousin.

This is one of the shows in John Hinton's multi-award-winning Scientrilogy of musical comedies.

"Remarkably inventive, thoroughly entertaining…Science can rarely have been so fascinating and never so much fun." - The Stage

"Comic genius...Grown-ups will love it. Kids will adore it. A gem." - Broadway Baby

"John Hinton is an absolute joy… This guy would get anyone interested in science." - **** Adelaide Theatre Guide 

Other touring dates may be available, please call the company to discuss

The Origin of Species is also performing at Sheringham Little Theatre
