Unit Set/Multiple Settings

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.
"EVOLUTION, a fast-paced, sharply written morality tale by Jonathan Marc Sherman, puts a fresh, funny spin on the subject." —NY Daily News. "[A] fresh and heady whiplash of a social Satire/Political Satire…[Sherman] writes really smart fun with breathless abandon…Sherman intends Henry's morality tale to teach the importance of knowing what we want. Mission accomplished. We want more plays from Sherman." —NY Newsday. "Articulate and generationally savvy playwright…ironic humor and pop culture mindset…educated wit of his satirical style…Candide-like quest for purpose and direction…Sherman sends up this familiar material with irreverent originality…Sherman's mock-heroic version has a decidedly fresh feel to it." —Variety.
