Overview


Synopsis

This two-person play is set in the Garden of Eden and follows the meeting of the first man and woman. Playwright James Still combines Mark Twain’s short stories about Adam and Even to create the story. The play begins at the couple’s meeting and the battle of the sexes starts, language is deliciously invented, and loneliness and heartbreak are poignantly discovered. In Act Two, we jump forward to the present day. Adam and Eve are in their 40’s and are now distracted with high power careers. Eventually, the "first couple" returns to present-day Eden (now an upscale resort simply called "E") in an attempt to recapture the primal passions of their youth
