The Diaries Of Adam And Eve

    by Elton Townend Jones (adapted from Mark Twain's Original)


     

‘Great fun… the humour rarely lets up.’ (British Theatre Guide)

The Diaries Of Adam And Eve (courtesy Ben Guest)Synopsis

Relationships: whose idea was that?

One of you wants to get things done, the other wants to chill out in the garden.
One of you wants a minute’s peace, the other wants to talk (and talk and talk).
One of you likes things the way they are, the other wants a project.
One of you knows that eating that apple is wrong, but the other is going to eat it anyway.

Relationships shouldn’t work, but somehow they do – so who did the groundwork?

In this witty and modern adaptation of Mark Twain’s affectionate satire, Adam and Eve – the world’s first couple – confront their many differences to find successful ways of living and loving together. Whether they’re creating language, inventing fire, taming nature, or discovering love and death, what they learn about each other on the way will be familiar and funny to anyone who has ever experienced a close relationship.

The play explores, in a very accessible way, companionship, its challenges and consolations, and has some really moving moments in among the laughs and smiles.
