The Wider Earth

by David Morton

BEFORE DARWIN CHANGED THE WORLD,

ONE VOYAGE CHANGED HIS LIFE.

The award-winning drama The Wider Earth tells the story of the rebellious young Charles Darwin.

Join the twenty-two year old 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.

An ensemble cast, remarkable puppetry, cinematic projections and an original score by Lior and Tony Buchen all combine to bring to life uncharted landscapes and incredible creatures in this highly ambitious theatrical event.

"This is a voyage of extraordinary theatrical discovery that celebrates the power of curiosity, the natural world and big ideas. " – Sydney Morning Herald 

"Simply beautiful... The skeletal puppets move with beautiful realism – birds soar over the audience, fireflies rise into the air and sea creatures move through the water with fluid grace.’" – Limelight

"Like a puppet version of The Blue Planet. A beautiful event – highly informative and visually amazing" – Mail On Sunday 

"Epic, with a sweeping score and a stunning visual richness." – Broadway World 

"Irresistible Fun! A New favourite thing" – New York Daily News
