When archaeologist Molly discovers a prehistoric skeleton on a dig in Africa, she doesn’t expect it to return to life and take up residence in her small cottage in Yorkshire. But Victoria isn’t just any Neanderthal woman: she’s good with fire, a mean dancer, and determined to show the modern world just where it’s gone wrong for the past four million years.

A clever and quirky comedy by the award-winning writer of FROZEN (4 Tony award nominations) and the critically acclaimed KURSK (Young Vic), marking the 150th Anniversary of Charles Darwin’s On the Origin of Species
