Sinner describes he works as "A two-actor diptych that is a modern take on Adam and Eve, trapped in various forms of a deteriorating Garden of Eden. First presented as Brother and Sister (after all, Eve was "created" from Adam's rib; doesn't that make them related?) in stylized white face, part gothic kabuki, part slapstick vaudeville, living in their own isolated apocalyptic playground, the siblings play, bicker, sing and dance as frantically as they can to ward off their own psychological endgame. The second piece explores the couple as Husband and Wife, with the wife's subconscious attempts to liberate herself from the classic "Doll's House" Syndrome. She short circuits before us while delivering a monologue, sharing her fantastical sexual yearnings and interior life while disconcerting voice-overs and music cues bombard her as her husband snores."
The show is written and directed by Los Angeles native John Sinner, who is the Producing Artistic Director of Theatre Revelation.
