About the Production:

A Queensland Theatre and Dead Puppet Society production.

Charles Darwin’s journey through nature, faith and science brought to life with puppets and actors

Written by David Morton, this ambitious collaboration is a visually stunning reimagining of Charles Darwin’s voyage on the HMS Beagle.

It’s brought to life by an award-winning cast and over 30 astonishing custom-built puppets, played out before projected galaxies and maps, with a rich original music score by Lior and Tony Buchen.

Join Darwin on his near five-year journey, encountering the wildlife that inspired his theory of evolution.
