Written and directed by David Morton, The Wider Earth looks at the early years of Charles Darwin and how a fateful voyage to the Southern Hemisphere became the catalyst for On the Origin of Species.
Natural history comes alive in spectacular fashion in The Wider Earth – and appropriately enough, it does so in a custom-built theatre at London’s Natural History Museum.
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.
If there’s one thing I’ve learned from the works of Emlyn Williams, it’s that he writes a thriller or murder mystery, if you like, with a predictable culprit and lack of twist. However, it’s the path that leads you to learn the truth that you already suspected all along, that makes for interesting viewing.
The Original Theatre Company and Salisbury Playhouse in association with Eastbourne Theatres will present the national tour of Emlyn Williams’ psychological thriller, NIGHT MUST FALL, directed by Luke Sheppard and starring Gwen Taylor as Mrs Bramson. The tour will begin at Devonshire Park Theatre in Eastbourne on 19 August 2016, with a national press night on Wednesday 7 September at Salisbury Playhouse.
