Book and lyrics by Raphe Beck and Christopher La Puma. Music by Deborah Wicks La Puma.
Cast: 3m., 4w. (plus 3 either gender, chorus.) In the beginning, God created man; that was her first mistake. Thus begins One Bad Apple, a musical comedy that turns the Book of Genesis into the first battle of the sexes. In a very corporate world of Creation, two competitive angels pit Adam and Eve against each other to see which prototype will be the more successful model for the human race. When their experiment takes on a life of its own, God kicks the humans out of Eden and considers scrapping the whole thing and starting over. Unless Adam and Eve can prove their worth before the end of the sixth day, they are doomed. And yes, there's a nervous snake, a resentful devil, and a juicy red piece of fruit. One Bad Apple was commissioned by and premiered at Stanford University. Single set. Approximate Running Time: 90 minutes.
An optional accompaniment CD is available for use with this show. See Rental Info for details.
