Abstract

In 1859, Charles Darwin published On the Origin of Species, a book that suggested universal common descent among all species. This idea had a major impact on the way humankind was viewed, the idea of free will versus destiny, and society as a whole. Theatre reflected this new way of thinking during the 19th century.
