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.

A Dead Puppet Society, Trish Wadley Production and Glass Half Full Productions production

"No praise could be too high for The Wider Earth, QTC’s astonishingly original collaboration with Brisbane’s youthful Dead Puppet Society."
The Australian

Supported by Dead Puppet Society, Australian Government RISE Fund and Australia Council for the Arts.
