To ensure that the play is relevant and appropriate to its intended audience a four day workshop took place from 10-14 August 2009. This workshop brought together young people from Islington Youth Theatre and local schools, the playwright, professional actors and two scientific communication volunteers. Photos from the workshop can be seen to the right.
Over four days, the participants questioned and explored Darwin's ideas. Through discussion and improvisation, small theatre pieces were produced. These pieces will inspire and form the basis of the final piece to be created by the writer, Ali Taylor.
