Letter Opener

People are nosy by nature. If you stumble across an open diary, yeah, you’re going to read it. And, if your BF/GF forgot to log out of his or her e-mail . . . well, god help them. That’s why it makes sense that the personal letters of historical figures fascinates us, too. Take Charles Darwin, for instance. We know what he did for science, but what about the man? Lance Gharavi, who developed the Dreaming Darwin series, seeks to answer that through workshops and staged readings based on the English bloke’s hand-scrawled messages.
