September 8 to October 1
Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays at 8pm. Sunday matinee on September 25 at 2pm.
Friday Focus is September 16: Arrive at 7:15pm to hear from director and/or designers and stay after the show to meet the actors for more discussion.
In this play-within-a-play, a director discusses with her actors how to interpret two famous historical figures from 1831: Robert Fitzroy and Charles Darwin. Fitzroy, a staunch Christian, has faith in the unquestionable authority of the Bible, while Darwin begins to explore a more radical vision, his theory of natural selection.
A meditation on history and human relationships, After Darwin links past and present through six characters, and raises timeless questions about faith, friendship, and how we interpret the past.
“…richly layered…a play to be relished for its ability to provoke thought.” – Backstage.com
