The Unexpected Adventures of Darwin The Chimp

In a small cage, behind narrow bars,lived Darwin - a fitting name for a chimp don't you think? Every day he was gawped at and taunted. He always wondered what life was like beyond the zoo.

When a postcard is dropped in front of the chimp’s cage, everything changes. He picks it up and sees others just like him. They were together and happy. He wished he could swing amongst the highest of trees. He longed for a family and somewhere to belong.

One day, Darwin has the chance to leave the zoo behind him and enter the big wide world. On his journey to the place on the postcard, he encounters an array of characters that teach him the true value of friendship. However, Darwin also comes face to face with someone who has a very different idea of where his home should be...

Award-winning Ditto Theatre Company presents this original story that combines storytelling, puppetry and movement. Join us on an adventure of friendship, family and what it means to be home.
