Freely based on the story of Genesis, “Children of Eden” is a frank, heartfelt and often humorous examination of the age-old conflict between parents and children. Adam, Eve, Noah and the “Father” who created them deal with the headstrong, cataclysmic actions of their respective children. The show ultimately delivers a bittersweet but inspiring message: that “the hardest part of love… is letting go”. Created with modest production requirements in mind, the show is equally at home in black-box theatres and on large proscenium stages. The melodic, energetic score is a mix of pop, folk, rock, reggae, gospel, Broadway and powerful choral moments.
Direction this year will be by Nadia Quick, assisted by Sharon Cox, both of whom have long associations with the Society. We are delighted to welcome them back after a few years’ absence from the team. We are delighted too to welcome back Dermot O’Callaghan and Deirdre Nolan for their second year with D.M.D.S. as Musical Director and Choreographer.
