Montana Repertory Theatre's Educational Outreach Tour is bringing to the stage Mark Twain's humorous and touching account of the Creation Story, in an adaptation by Ron Fitzgerald. Directed by Andy Meyers, Artistic Director of the Fort Peck Summer Theatre, this three-person show stars Caitlin McRae, Jamie Parnell, and Ryan Luwe (who is also the company stage manager).
Coming to Dawson Community College on September 20 at 6:30 p.m. in the Toepke Center - DCC Auditorium Mark Twain's Diaries of Adam and Eve. The play is FREE.
Told in under 50 minutes, this production gives a contemporary slant to Twain's famous satire on Adam and Eve's experiences in the Garden of Eden. No attempt is made at historical or biblical accuracy; instead, Twain uses the occasion of the Creation to poke gentle fun at humankind's foibles and foolishness.
This presentation follows in Montana Rep's Educational Outreach Tour tradition of bringing staged adaptations of the works of acclaimed historical writers to Montana communities. Published in 1906, Twain's short story highlights many of the same issues that resonate for today's audiences more than 100 years later.
