‘Mr. Darwin’s Tree,’ Acclaimed British One-Man Play

Mr. Darwin’s Tree, the acclaimed British one-man play that explores the life and work of Charles Darwin within the context of science, faith and family, is coming to Belmont University’s Troutt Theatre on Oct. 26.

Mr. Darwin’s Tree, the acclaimed British one-man play that explores the life and work of Charles Darwin within the context of science, faith and family, is coming to Belmont University’s Troutt Theatre on Oct. 26.

Written by noted playwright and director Murray Watts and starring leading British film, TV and theatre actor Andrew Harrison, Mr. Darwin’s Tree has been described as “a brilliant, fast-paced and beautifully detailed performance” (“Church Times”).

Mr. Darwin’s Tree presents a very human and very real Charles Darwin, one who wrestled with the challenges that his theories posed for traditional beliefs. It also presents Darwin’s wife, Emma, as an intelligent and articulate representative of Christian faith. In doing so, the play rejects the “straw man” effigies of Darwin presented by both his extreme protagonists and antagonists, providing the opportunity for lively engagement, thoughtful conversations and fresh explorations.
