What to expect in a London adventure show

5 February 2019

Join the 22-year-old rebellious and inquisitive young naturalist Charles Darwin on this kids adventure play. Darwin grasps an opportunity to set out on an intrepid five-year voyage on HMS Beagle to distant and exotic lands.  Come and discover the gripping story behind one of the most important discoveries in history.  

Don’t miss your chance to see this award-winning play, featuring over 40 remarkable handcrafted puppets, dazzling animations, and a brilliant cast of seven in a brand new theatre at the Natural History Museum.

Prepare for a great day out with the family and witness Writer and director David Morton’s story, which is packed with enough puppetry, projections and pulsating music to blow a young audience away.

Come and see for yourself the intricate thought and detail behind the staging, lighting, music, costume and design in this in this adventure play. Witness a rotating wooden structure bathed in different light against a changing projected backdrop, adapting to locations in Darwin’s Cambridge professor’s rooms, uneven exotic terrain and the convincingly creaky wooden interior and exterior of the HMS Beagle.

You will be left in awe and amazement by the thirty spectacular lifelike puppets representing the tropical wildlife Darwin encountered. From tiny Galápagos finches, to giant tortoises, armadillos, shoals of exotic fish and a duck-billed platypus, you’ll find it hard to take your eyes off them!
