The de Chardin Project - a play about the origins of the universe

The de Chardin Project is a play about Jesuit priest, scientist and philosopher Pierre Teilhard de Chardin (1881-1955). Silenced and exiled by the church, de Chardin, a renowned paleontologist, crossed continents searching for the missing link between his love for God and his love of Science. His groundbreaking discoveries in human evolution transcended barriers between Faith and Science. And today, his work is regarded as having changed the conversation about cosmology, evolution and theology.

In the play, de Chardin, having suffered a cerebral hemorrhage, finds himself beyond the physical world and engaged with a mysterious guide who leads him on the ultimate adventure: the excavation of himself. The play is a Dora Mavor Moore Award winner for Outstanding New Play (Independent Category).

We are delighted to be joined by the playwright, Adam Seybold, and his wife, actress Kate Fenton, for a dramatic reading of this fascinating exploration of life, science and faith!
