THE WRONG SIDE OF EDEN

ByKelly Knox

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
The Wrong Side of Eden-- I started with a well known story: Jack and The Beanstalk. But in this version we begin with Jack's encounter with the Peddler--and a few others; and after that encounter, Jack does not return home with a handful of magic beans--but is beaten, robbed, stripped naked and left for dead by the side of the road--by a vicious, chanting, singing and dancing (Greek) Chorus. He is awakened by a young girl "Jenny" who is innocently picking apples from trees that line the road--which we soon find out is the road to through the underworld...that will eventually lead to the Garden of Eden.... You can see it's not a 'typical play'--it operates on its own terms, complete with its own internal sense of logic, plot and character; although, I believe that in performance the audience will be able to follow the 'action' and the argument easily--because many elements are already so familiar to them.
