First announced back in July, David Morton’s play The Wider Earth about Charles Darwin will be settling in at the Natural History Museum at the beginning of next month in a brand new theatre space on site.
Trish Wadley Productions and Dead Puppet Society are creating a 357-seat traditional performance theatre in the Jerwood Gallery at the Natural History Museum to host the European premiere of the award-winning Darwin drama, The Wider Earth.
