Announcing auditions: The Diaries of Adam and Eve
Audition dates have been set for The Diaries of Adam and Eve, the first staged reading of the 2010-2011 season at Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette. The script is adapted by David Birney from "Adam's Diary" and "Diary for Eve" by Mark Twain. Auditions will take place at 6:30 p.m. on Monday, August 23 and Tuesday, August 24 at Civic's office at 313 N. 5th Street in downtown Lafayette.
Director David Dietz is looking to cast 1 adult man and 1 adult woman. Everyone who plans to audition will be asked to read from the script.
Originally broadcast on American Playhouse, this delightful adaptation is structured as a series of diary entries by Adam and Eve. At first, Adam is puzzled by the new arrival in the garden and he is suspicious of her disturbing appetite for fruit. Eve, believing herself to be some sort of experiment, is curious about another experiment in the garden, perhaps some sort of reptile or possibly architecture. Eve gives names to everything, much to Adam's annoyance. He tries to ignore her, so she seeks companionship among the animals particularly with a certain snake.
The staged reading of The Diaries of Adam and Eve will be held Tuesday, September 14 at 7:30 p.m. at Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette at the corner of 5th Street and North Street. There will be a brief discussion immediately following. This is a Pay What You Can event.
