The Quickening Theatre Company presents: The De Chardin Project
The Quickening Theatre Company (Fish Face, Mister Baxter, Code Blue) presents
the world premiere of The De Chardin Project, the story of Pierre Teilhard de Chardin: Jesuit Priest. Paleontologist. Visionary. Pierre Teilhard de Chardin (1881-1955) crossed continental cultures seeking the missing link between Faith and Science. His reward for his ground-breaking discoveries in human evolution? Condemnation and exile.
"As a writer, I'm fascinated by the paradox inherent in Teilhard's life,” says playwright Adam Seybold. “A Jesuit Priest who advocated for the theory of Evolution and even though he was blocked at every turn by the Vatican he never gave up his commitment to the Church. I believe that today we can find hope in his struggle to bridge the gap between Heaven and Earth."
