Darwin’s Captain

A play about Charles Darwin and his journey with the ship the Beagle. Many years after the five-year long journey, Darwin receives a message that his captain on the ship, FitzRoy, has committed suicide. The play portrays the reception of Darwin’s discoveries, as well as the consequences of taking a stand against existing ideas in a world that is built on the belief in God as the only creator of life.
