Mr Darwin's Tree at Thorington Theatre


starring Andrew Harrison, written by Murray Watts

Join us on 12th August 2022 for Mr Darwin's Tree at Thorington Theatre. “Harrison portrays the dozen or so characters seamlessly and effortlessly.” - The Times.

Thorington Theatre is privileged to host Mr Darwin’s Tree. This compelling 75 minute performance focuses on the relationship between Darwin, an agnostic, and his wife Emma, a Christian. It was commissioned for the bicentenary of Darwin's birth and premiered in Westminster Abbey; it has since toured the world educating and entertaining not only Darwin enthusiasts but all of us.

The thought-provoking debate between Darwin and his wife touches on science, religion, love and the nature of existence, topics that are as relevant today as ever before, and is spellbindingly performed by the immensely talented Andrew Harrison.

Thorington Theatre is a magical new open air woodland theatre in Suffolk. There is a bar serving refreshments and free parking; you are welcome to bring a picnic to enjoy before the show. Doors open 45 minutes before each show. For more information please follow @thoringtontheatre.
