Adam and Eve are in Paradise – a multi-storey

shopping centre that claims to offer everything

they want. They are presided over by the enigmatic

proprietor, archangel Uriel, who tantalises them with

choice. As their relationship strains at the edges, they

grasp at the things that they think will solve their

problems: a baby, a job, sandals that are the right shade

of mustard. But Adam can’t afford anything, and Eve

desires it all. Tempted by the prospect of a new life, and

growing increasingly impatient with Adam’s apathetic

state, Eve starts to question the value of love. A funny,

searching play that asks how to be happy in a world

that is constantly demanding us to want more.
