Theatre Guelph will open its ninth production at the River Run Centre this Friday at 8pm.
The Diaries of Adam & Eve will have two performances, at 2 and 8pm on Valentine’s Day, with an additional matinee Feb. 15 at 2pm.
The play is based on two short stories by Mark Twain. The original titles were Extracts from Adam’s Diary, and Eve’s Diary, translated from the original manuscript by Mark Twain.” Director Dan Kelley edited the works for the stage. The play begins with the creation of Eve and ends with her death. Only when she passes away does Adam realize what love is.
Twain’s version is a love story and a comedy about the foibles of marriage. Adam and Eve view the same events with totally different interpretations.
All performances are in Co-operators Hall at the River Run Centre. The performance runs about 75 minutes, with no intermission.
Tickets are $25 for adults and $20 for seniors. There is a special Valentines price of $40 for couples, and a special student price of $10.
