What does it say about the state of our relationship, if one small thing comes along and destroys it forever?
Would you Adam & Eve it? Writer Tim Cook’s modern day Genesis story, which proved a hit first time around, in London, last year, is back for a transfer to The Hope Theatre next month.
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 will be played by Lee Knight and Jeannie Dickinson returns in the role of Eve. Melissa Parker plays Nikki.
Lee’s theatre credits include Much Ado About Nothing (Wyndhams Theatre, West End), Drama at Inish (Finborough Theatre), Archimedes Principle (Park Theatre), Savage (Arts Theatre) where he was nominated Best Actor at The Offies.
He recently played lead role of Tony in the 35th Anniversary Production of Kevin Elyott’s Coming Clean (King’s Head Theatre).
Film Includes: Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire and TV includes Sherlock, Grange Hill.
Jeannie graduated from East 15 Acting school in 2014.
Adam & Eve, which first played at the Brockley Jack last year, is a startling new play about trust, feminism and the nature of accusations, from award-winning Royal Court Young Writer Tim Cook.
Directed by Jennifer Davis, Adam & Eve runs at The Hope Theatre, Islington, from May 22 – June 9.
