This was an inspirational comedy about Charles Darwin's early life that considered burning questions concerning bugs, big bangs and body-snatchers. A visual spectacular, the show celebrated Darwin's early life in Shrewsbury, sharing his voyage of discovery and the sights and sounds that shaped a great mind. It's a play about hope, family life, genius, invention and questioning.

Can you spot a genius at the age of nine? What makes you ask the biggest questions about life and where we come from? How does a Shropshire lad become one of the most Incredible minds in the history of the world?
