From Orchids to Octopi: An Evolutionary Love Story

2011 IRNE Award Winner — Best New Play

Surprises erupt as a muralist’s work is derailed by hallucinations, pregnancy, and dinosaurs in this witty take on how we understand – or do not – the theory of evolution. And Charles Darwin comments on it all. Commissioned by the National Institutes of Health in celebration of the 150th anniversary of "On the Origin of Species."
