A Darwin Day Celebration

Featuring a staged reading of
"A Search for Truth That Shook The World: A Drama In One Act" by Beth Staas 
with Scott Thompson as Charles Darwin, and Vicki Elberfeld as his wife, Emma.


One year before his world-shattering book, Origin of Species, middle-aged Charles Darwin received a letter from Alfred Russel Wallace asking for Darwin’s good offices in presenting Wallace’s research to the Linnean Society. Charles Darwin, husband, father, medical school and priestly drop-out with a mere bachelor’s degree was facing a challenge: Would someone else present the Theory of Evolution and thereby be given the credit – or blame? This evening’s program will be a staged reading of that event through a conversation between Darwin and his Christian wife Emma as they struggle with honor, truth and potential fame in the world of science. Following the performance, we’ll have a party for Darwin’s birthday.
