The Origin of Species EMN-160803-105942001

Musical comedy comes to Saint Mary’s Church in Horncastle this month.

Origin of the Species is an original production by John Hint about Charles Darwin.

In the show we find Charles Darwin hard at work on his new book about barnacles. To boost sales, his publisher has invited young and not so young naturalists - the audience - to watch him at work.

However today is about to prove to be no ordinary day.

Charles receives a letter from a fellow naturalist claiming he has come up with the idea of the origin of species, an idea Charles has been working on for 20 years. Suddenly, he must finish his book.

Presented by Tangram Theatre, the show takes place in the church on Friday March 18. The performance starts at 7.30pm, with tickets available on the door, priced £10, concessions £8 and under 14s £5.
