A New Play with Music
TICKETS ON SALE NOW
Cry Eden is a new play with music exploring the myth of Cain and Abel as the very first coming of age story. The piece examines sibling rivalry, the impulse towards violence and the struggle of growing up in a world where the rules are not quite clear. Cry Eden features The Descendants of Cain – a folk/rock band made up of the ensemble that guides our narrative and grounds it in the present day.
