Adam and Eve in the Garden of Delights, or Love (Non-equity)
By Alejandro de la Costa
Directed by Mark-Brian Sonna
The play will be presented at the Addison Theatre Center May 11-21, 2023.
Nominated as best new play of the year “Adam and Eve in the Garden of Delights, or Love” is wickedly sexy and funny re-telling of the original war of the sexes. We all know the story of Adam and Eve, the apple and the snake. What if the snake were a person, and not just any person, but a F-boy with no morals whose main purpose is to seduce either Adam or Eve? This religiously incorrect retelling of what happened in the Garden of Eden is outrageous, scandalous, and oh so sexy.
Adam, Male 20’s. A goofy, good natured “bro” that isn’t particularly bright. He falls for Eve, but he develops a strong bromance with Serpentem that threatens his relationship with Eve.
Serpentem, Male 20’s to 40’s. The ultimate player or F-Boy who is wickedly charming, smart, and simply wants to have fun. He is pansexual, with few morals, and lives in the moment. This actor playing this role is body painted with vines and leaves.
The role of Eve is not available.
A note about the nudity in the play:
The three characters remain clothed throughout most of the play.
Adam gets “pantsed” in one scene so his bottom is exposed to the audience briefly.
Eve is caught putting her top on at the start of a scene but her back is to the audience.
Serpentem is nude in two of the eight scenes but his nudity becomes a running joke because there is always something “covering” his front side so the audience can’t see. Example: he is laying on the stage face down and when he does stand up his back is to the audience and as he is about to turn around a fruit basket covers his front, or one of the characters crosses to “block the view” from the audience, etc.
