Clever, Funny, Intelligent, Relevant, Quirky

See it if you want to see a great feminist take on life in Eden before the fall.

Don't see it if you have no sense of humor

Ambitious, Overrated, Short

See it if you want a mostly female cast, a different account of whether the Garden of Eden was paradise and a different explanation for the expulsion.

Don't see it if you want more than one-sided characters and an undeveloped idea. This play failed to meet its potential. I give it a C- grade.

Theatre is Easy
August 24th, 2016

"We wonder why Eve didn’t depart sooner, and a little more effort to show Paradise’s appeal might have created some interesting dramatic tension…'Eve' sets up a plot rife with issues of gender parity, free will, and self-definition, but never quite gives these themes their full due. However, by highlighting this well-known tale's all-too-familiar flavors of sexism and power dynamics, Hutson-Ellenberg invites us to consider Eve’s side of the story."
