The Butterfly Hunter
By Geinor Styles

4.30pm | Saturday 26th October 2019 | Free (but book in advance)
Dylan Thomas Theatre, Swansea

As part of the Swansea Science Festival, multi award-winning Theatr na nÓg invite you on an adventure with one of the greatest scientists of all time, as he seeks to find an answer.

Born in Wales, Alfred Russel Wallace came up with the theory of evolution at the same time as Charles Darwin after stumbling upon an unusual beetle in the Neath Valley. Set sail on a fantastic journey from Wales to Brazil and the Malay Archipelago, exploring jungles and remote islands as we follow in Wallace’s footsteps and see how his theory came to light.

Expect magical storytelling brought to life by three talented actors, original music, and captivating projections and animations which promise to transport you from banks of the River Usk deep into the Amazon jungle.

Perfect for families with children aged 7+
