Synopsis

Byron's tense drama about the family of Adam and Eve is as modern as today's tragic newspaper headlines. It depicts the world's first family as a family of today: Cain as the first youthful rebel, and Lucifer as the first false friend who steps into the gap between parents and offspring, supplying the son with answers when the parents lack the patience and the understanding to give him answers. He also provides excitement—in the form of a trip. This adaptation provides ample opportunities for imaginative direction, creative acting, and exciting use of lights, sound and special effects. The trip scene, especially, lends itself to psychedelic lighting.This is without a doubt one of the most exciting plays that can be found to relate to life in today's turbulent America—it may provide some answers for your audiences.
