Imagine Darwin introducing Galileo to evolution for the first time. What would this master of maths and logic make of Darwin's account? Would he be impressed? Turns out, he isn't. In fact, he decides he can come up with a better theory of evolution and win for himself fame equal to Darwin's. This 90-minute play is at the same time a modern comedy about two cranky old men jockeying for power and a classic philosophical dialogue about one of the major issues of our day: what does it mean for human nature that we evolved? The play is an amusing exercise in critical thinking, suitable both for humanities students with an interest in human nature and a public hungry for some original thinking. Permission to perfom, free, to student groups, email.
