SYNOPSIS

As Henry struggles to inject life into his thesis on Charles Darwin, a simple question becomes most perplexing: What do you want? Using elements of Brechtian Epic Theatre infused with razor-sharp social commentary, Evolution follows Henry on a journey to Los Angeles with his girlfriend, Hope. When his uncanny pop-culture illiteracy becomes the fuel for an unexpected career in the entertainment industry, Henry must choose between the celebrity-culture success or academic obscurity, between embracing ambition and losing Hope.
