Full press release
The world premiere of a brand new musical comedy.
"There really was only one rule in Paradise..." - The Archangel Oliver.
It is the morning after the Fall of Man. Adam and Eve wake up in a part of Eden they don't recognise. Where are they? What did they do last night? And what the hell is going on underneath Adam's figleaf?
It is not until they meet the Archangel Oliver, their angelic 'Transition Officer' that they begin to understand the horrifying consequences of what they have done. Traumatised, Adam runs off to try and find Eden, leaving Eve to come to terms with the prospect of life alone on a brand new planet. It is the world's first row.
With a starring role for Lucifer and support from a caribou and a talking tree, Adam & Eve: The Musical takes an irreverent look at the oldest story ever, with nine original songs including Don't Go Near the Tree, (This) Morning Has Broken (my Heart)', and of course the definitive, show-stopping Sexual Love.
Adam & Eve: The Musical, is a hilarious new comedy with songs, written and composed by Ben Hales and directed by Matt Wilde. With Splendid Productions' trademark theatrical wit and energy, a small but perfectly formed cast take you back to the beginning of time for a highly tempting mix of live music and laughter, good and evil, birds, bees and the whole future of humanity.
"Taste the fruit, Eve... You do need five a day" - Lucifer.
