Additional Info

In this provocative, sad and funny play about the kind of monkey we are, a feisty Eve speaks about life in the Garden of Eden with the simple minded Adam, the turquoise eyed serpent, and the elusive and brooding Creator with his bizarre rules and enigmatic disposition. Eve has her own views on love, sin, loneliness, and the motives of the tortured and frustrating Lord of the Garden, and they are not at all what she is supposed to believe. A wonderful showcase for a smart and compelling actress.
