Broken Silence Theatre’s critically acclaimed feminist take on the Garden of Eden returns to London next month. After success last year at west London’s Brockley Jack Theatre, Adam & Eve transfers north to Islington for a strictly limited season. The modern-day Genesis story will run at the Hope Theatre from 22 May to 9 June 2018, with a press night on 24 May.
‘What does it say about the state of our relationship, if one small thing comes along and destroys it forever?’
Newlyweds Adam & Eve are moving to the countryside, leaving the city behind for good. They’re going to buy a house, start a family and live happily ever after. But when Adam is suspended from work and accusations are made, they’re forced to question how well they really know each other.
What lurks beneath the surface? And how can marriage survive in a post-truth society?
Adam & Eve is a startling new play about trust, feminism and the nature of accusations. It’s written by award-winning Royal Court Young Writer Tim Cook and directed by Jennifer Davis, with lighting by Ben Jacobs and sound by Aran Knight. The Broken Silence Theatre Production had its London premiere last September at Brockley Jack Theatre where, amongst its five-star reviews, LondonTheatre1 declared it “utterly phenomenal”.
