In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.
(He wanted to fill a gap, it happens to us all sooner or later)
He put fish in the sea, birds in the air and a host of angels in the firmament.
(Hey, we all want to be seen)
Then he created man.
(Because he had a lot of love to give)
...In his own image.
(That’s a little awkward)
The act of creation is so rewarding. It’s romantic and fulfilling, and over very quickly. Then comes the tricky part: parenting, dominion…gardening.
It’s hard for God. Eden is littered with uncomfortable reminders of failure: the raptor fossil picks holes in the Creation story and the unspoken eloquence of the Neanderthal man is almost unbearable. But God has Adam and, in this at least, he can be well pleased.
In fact, God loves his son so much he wants to give him everything, and Satan is there to encourage God’s indulgence: with a beautiful wife, the resources of the Garden, and every animal within under his command, Adam wants for nothing.
The Garden grows, and as man and woman evolve in ways that even God can’t predict, can the harmony of such a fragile experiment in fatherhood survive?
A new musical comedy about parental imperfection and the absurdity of perfect love.
Eve tries to convince Adam to fight for what is right.
Adam is torn between obeying God and his love for Eve.
The lowly rat plots the destruction of Adam and Eve.
