In 2000, this play went to the Edinburgh Fringe, and played a few spots around the Highlands, gaining good reviews. A uniquely Scottish take on the Adam and Eve Story, full of rough humour and big questions asked in broad Scottish accents. The Garden has a prologue that tells the story of Creation, which you can choose to do or not. A favourite with older youth theatres.
“Written in lively, accessible, urban Scots, this play is enormous fun. A wonderful show.” The Scotsman ****
