About the show


John Hinton's Scientrilogy is back in 2018, full of music, comedy, theatre, and a whole lot of science!

Charles Darwin, working hard on his new book, receives a letter from a fellow naturalist claiming that he has come up with the idea of the origin of species, an idea that Charles has been working on for 20 years. Suddenly he must finish his work! Easily distracted, Charles begins sharing his family history, songs he has written, and some of his new discoveries. Today is no ordinary day for this extraordinary scientist.

Bring your monkeys along to this international smash-hit musical comedy that's returning to Adelaide by popular demand!

See 'Origin of Species...' as a solo performance, or with 'Albert Einstein: Relativitively Speaking' and 'The Element in the Room' as part of the Scientrilogy.


Nominated: Best Performer; Best Show, Adelaide Fringe Festival 2012
