Re:Design – Charles Darwin & Asa Gray on stage
150 years after Charles Darwin first presented his theory to fellow scientists and amidst year-long Darwin celebrations in 2009, Re:Design is a fascinating and timely dramatisation of 30 years correspondence between Charles Darwin, Kent, England and Asa Gray in Boston, USA. Intellectual debate around science and religion is interwoven with gossip, opinion and anecdotes about everything from war and slavery, to family incidents and unfortunate gardening accidents.
If you’re interested in joining a party to see the play, please get in touch ASAP.
(Darwin is played by Terry Molloy, my brother-in-law, who also plays Mike Tucker in The Archers, and was Davros in the original Doctor Who – Margaret)
