The cast of Alfreton Wesley Church’s new play based on Charles Darwin’s Origin of the Species are appealing for props to be donated.

Creation is set in spring 1860, a year after the publication of the scientist’s key work. But the period setting is proving a problem for the show’s organisers. Producer David Hopkinson said: “We need a chaise longue, a pair of old fashioned crutches - and most especially - four old desks and forms for a Victorian classroom scene.” The three act play is set for the Ellesmere Avenue Church on Wednesday, March 27, and the following day at 7pm. If you can help with the props, call David on 01773 833627.
