Project MUSE - PrefaceDavid Birney has crafted a light-hearted look at the world's first love story through the eyes of America's greatest humorist, Mark Twain, whose Garden of Eden bursts with wit, laughter and the lyric poignance of the first love and the first loss. David Birney brings Mark Twain's words to life Adam and Eve must move from youth to maturity playing out the life of the couple together until the death of Eve.

Since that time, the show has enjoyed well over productions, in both extended runs and touring engagements at regional theatres, college and university theatres, and performing arts centers on both coasts and across the country.
