Buck Busfield directs B Street Theatre’s final main stage production this theater season, “Searching for Eden.”

The play by James Still, partially adapted from short stories by Mark Twain, imaginatively recreates the world’s first love story of Adam and Eve. In “Searching for Eden” the play opens at the dawn of time in the Garden of Eden where the battle of the sexes begins, language is deliciously invented, and loneliness and heartbreak are poignantly discovered. The play juxtaposes their new love with a leap forward to present day and a middle aged Adam (Jason Kuykendall) and Eve (Lyndsy Kail) returning to Eden, now an upscale resort called “E,” for their anniversary in an attempt to recapture the primal passions of their youth.

This witty and original play is a must see modern look at marriage exampled by the “first couple”.
