The Diaries of Adam and EveHADCAF presents:
The Diaries of Adam and Eve
The Croft Hall, Hungerford

Performed by Rebecca Vaughan and Elton Townend Jones
Adapted from Mark Twain by Elton Townend Jones.
Directed by Guy Masterson..

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, the other is going to eat it, come what may...

In this witty adaptation of Mark Twain's affectionate satire, the world's first couple confront their many differences to find a successful way of living and loving together. Whether they're creating language, inventing fire, taming nature, or discovering love and death, what they discover will be both familiar and funny to anyone who has ever experienced a close relationship.
