From the pens of Broadway composer Stephen Schwartz (Godspell/Pippin/Wicked) and Royal Shakespeare/Royal National Theatre director/writer, John Caird, comes the heart-warming action-packed musical Children of Eden. This powerful script was developed by the Royal Shakespeare Company.

Based on the Book of Genesis, we follow the stories of the creation of man and woman; Adam & Eve, The Garden of Eden, the naming of animals, Cain & Abel, Noah & the flood and the intricate interweaving of their families as they struggle with knowledge, fidelity and destiny.

This family-oriented production is not religion-based but presents its characters as human, flawed, loving, conflicted, striving - pursuing a direction in life that is embracing of all heritage and parentage. As in life, the characters often find themselves torn between choices - creating drama of the finest substance.
