Who is Charles Darwin? This fictionalized account explores that question from three points of view: Darwin's own, his daughter Lizzie's, and those of two young anthropologists drawn to Lizzie for an understanding of the man, each for different reasons. A different narrator for each of these parallel plot lines is a helpful technique, given the overlapping subject matter. Each strand of the story could easily stand on its own as each narrator provides an engaged performance, making skillful use of accents and good use of pace and timing. Together, the narrators construct a story in which the parallel plots are evenly matched and in balance, weaving the three strands together seamlessly.
