Featuring Holly Turner from Northern Light Theatre’s Production of The Testament of Mary

Evolution, feminism and comedy come together in Origin of the Species.
In Bryony Lavery's quirky Origin of the Species, ardent archaeologist Molly, digging for prehistoric man in Olduvai Gorge finds instead a four-million-year old female body. Upon kissing her lips, the four million year old woman comes to life, and is smuggled back to England and named Victoria, after Molly’s grandmother. Once in possession of this anthropological miracle, Molly spends New Year’s Eve seeking to teach Victoria what it means to be a woman in the 21st Century, and incidentally gains much more than she expected.

“...a telling allegory of the loss of innocence...Lavery's wit and imagination are unquestionably present." (London Observer)
