Last chance to see: 'Squirrel, or The Origin of a Species'

No votes yet

DarwinAndSquirrel.pngThis Thursday (July 21) sees the final performance of Squirrel, or The Origin of a Species, playing in the Redrum theater at Fort Fringe in Washington D.C., USA

A two-man comedy by Michael Merino, Squirrel is a dialogue between nineteenth-century naturalist Charles Darwin (played by Ian LeValley) and an American Grey Squirrel (played by Carlos Bustamante).

The play is presented as a series of skits, jumping about about in time and setting but roughly following Darwin's life between his voyage on the HMS Beagle and his writing On the Origin of Species. Bustamante brings the Squirrel to life with only a grey hat with ear flaps, and his own squirrelly movements.

Surely, this isn't Carlos Bustamante the MacArthur Fellowship-winning population geneticist? It'd be hilarious if it was.

I would like to see this.

But I can't.
