2023 Science Symposium - "Mr. Darwin's Tree"

Presented by Wheaton College at Billy Graham Hall at Wheaton College, Wheaton IL

Mar 28 2023
2023 Science Symposium - "Mr. Darwin's Tree"

The Natural Science Division at Wheaton College presents Mr. Darwin’s Tree, a play written by Murray Watts and performed by Andrew Harrison, on Tuesday, March 28, 2023, at 7:00 PM.

Mr. Darwin’s Tree presents a very human and very real Charles Darwin, one who wrestled with the challenges that his theories posed for traditional beliefs. It also presents Darwin’s wife, Emma, as an intelligent and articulate representative of Christian faith. In doing so, the play rejects the ‘straw man’ effigies of Darwin presented by both his extreme protagonists and antagonists, providing the opportunity for lively engagement, thoughtful conversations, and fresh explorations.
