Charley and Emma in Tampa

Here’s an interesting event going on in Tampa: CHARLEY AND EMMA by William Leavengood, Monday November 17, 2008 at 7:00 p.m.

The Gorilla Reading Series presents Charley and Emma, a new play by William Leavengood, in a staged reading directed by James Rayfield.

CHARLEY AND EMMA is about the tumultuous life and relationship of the famed father of evolution, Charles Darwin, and his devoutly Christian wife and first cousin, Emma Wedgewood. The play is rich with the history and science of Darwin’s life and discoveries, but also focuses on the struggle and triumph of two people who, despite being divided by an ideology that guided their entire existence, held their marriage together through their compassion and compromise.
