The Wider Earth

The Wider Earth



Meet a young Charles Darwin. Rebel. Explorer. Genius.

A 22-year-old Charles Darwin embarks on an adventure of a lifetime on HMS Beagle, setting sail on a voyage to the far side of the world.


Brought to life by a cast of seven, alongside remarkable puppetry, an original cinematic score, and dazzling animations, The Wider Earth is an extraordinary theatrical event about the theory that changed everything.



The Wider Earth will play in London from October 2018 in a custom-built theatre inside the iconic Natural History Museum.


The Wider Earth is presented by Trish Wadley Productions, Dead Puppet Society and Glass Half Full Productions in association with Queensland Theatre in a partnership project with the Natural History Museum.
