Mr Darwin’s Tree

Mr Darwin's Poster

We are delighted to announce that St Mark’s will be bringing two performances of the highly acclaimed play, Mr Darwin’s Tree, to its church stage in November. Written by Murray Watts (yes, there is a connection to our own lay reader, Andrew Watts) this show was commissioned by the think tank Theos in 2009 for the bicentenary of Darwin’s birth and premiered in Westminster Abbey.

Andrew Harrison’s compelling 75-minute solo performance focuses on the relationship between the agnostic Charles Darwin and his Christian wife, Emma, and takes us on a fascinating journey through Darwin’s life and though some of his own exploration of questions of science, faith, love and human destiny.


The Saturday matinee performance will be followed at by a Q&A with Andrew Harrison and Denis Alexander, of the Faraday Institute of Science and Religion.

Book early to avoid disappointment!
