Screenshot 2014-04-07 16.22.54The character of Emma Darwin in In The Garden: A Darwinian Love Story (by Sara Gmitter) is that apparent rarity: a character of faith in a movie, play, or TV show who isn’t portrayed as a bully or a crazy zealot. Rebecca Spence (left, with Andy White), the actress who created the role in the world premiere production at the Lookingglass Theatre, talks about the gift of playing her and shares the similarities between the church and the theatre. Featuring curiosity and wonder, incredibly supportive communities, the value of personal stories, a special appearance from Brian Dennehy, and grace notes of humility. (Length 14:52)
