About The Wider Earth

Before Darwin changed the world, one voyage changed his life. The award-winning drama The Wider Earth tells the story of the rebellious young Charles Darwin. Join the twenty-two year old Darwin on HMS Beagle’s daring voyage to the far side of the world and discover the gripping story behind one of the most important discoveries in history.
An ensemble cast, remarkable puppetry, cinematic projections and an original score by Lior and Tony Buchen all combine to bring to life uncharted landscapes and incredible creatures in this highly ambitious theatrical event.

“Like a puppet version of The Blue Planet. A beautiful event – highly informative and visually amazing.”
