Before Darwin changed the world, one voyage changed his life.
Join the 22-year-old Charles Darwin on HMS Beagle's daring voyage to the far side of the world, and discover the gripping story behind one of the most important discoveries in history.
Featuring a cast of seven, and 30 hand-made puppets representing the exotic wildlife Darwin encountered, The Wider Earth is an ingenious coming-of-age story which celebrates the incredible complexity of our planet and Darwin’s adventurous spirit as he faced perilous environments and unknown dangers on his bold voyage.
A school visit to the show can help support teaching in many aspects of the science and drama curricula for students aged eleven and above.
