Casting has now been announced for the return of Broken Silence Theatre’s critically acclaimed modern-day, feminist update on the Garden of Eden story. Adam & Eve runs at the Hope Theatre from 22 May to 9 June 2018, with a press night on 24 May. Time to get booking!
What does it say about the state of our relationship, if one small thing comes along and destroys it forever?
Newlyweds Adam and 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.
Jeannie Dickinson reprises her role as Eve opposite, as Adam, Lee Knight, who last year in the 35th-anniversary revival of Kevin Elyot’s Coming Clean, down the road from the Hope at Islington’s King’s Head Theatre. Melissa Parker plays Nikki (is she a serpent?).
Adam & Eve is 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”.
