From Orchids To Octopi: An Evolutionary Love Story By Melinda Lopez
Directed by Diego Arciniegas
Underground Railway Theater’s science theater initiative with MIT – presents this World Premiere by award-winning playwright Melinda Lopez, commissioned by the National Institutes of Health to celebrate the 150th anniversary of On the Origin of Species.

Charles Darwin comments on it all.
