Charles Darwin: Collapsing Creation

Commissioned to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the publication of On the Origin of Species, Charles Darwin: Collapsing Creation is a full-length drama about a visionary man who must battle his body and mind to gain the courage to change the world - and the strength to face the consequences.

Darwin’s study at Down House becomes the hothouse in which his theory is generated. The many people in his life are collapsed into four fully-rounded, composite characters who embody the various personalities influencing his actions.

Over the course of a morning, noon and night representing the passage of forty years, Darwin must overcome his conscience, fear and collapsing body to change science, thought and ultimately the world.
