When: Sat, 1 November, 19:30 – 20:30.

Where: The New Bradford Playhouse, 4 Chapel St, Bradford, United Kingdom (map).

What: In aid of Yorkshire Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament and DASH (a local charity supporting asylum seekers). Robert Newman has agreed to do a benefit gig.

Following this year’s sell-out run in London’s West End, and after sell-out shows in Belfast, Bristol, Birmingham, Cardiff, Manchester and Glasgow, A New Theory of Evolution now comes to the New Bradford Playhouse. A New Theory of Evolution tells how a series of personal calamities and jammy flukes led Rob to hit upon a whole new theory of evolution, which he calls the ‘Survival of the Misfits’.

A New Theory of Evolution is a tour de force that whirls the audience from altruistic vampire bats and laidback rats to WH Auden’s last poem, the polar jet stream and Richard Dawkins wrestling naked with his postman. A New Theory of Evolution explores the exciting new discoveries in the field of evolutionary biology, which, the show argues, have put paid to selfish gene theory to open up instead a much more intriguing world of wonder.
