Mark Twain wrote his comic short story “Eve’s Diary,” first published in the 1905 Christmas issue of Harper’s Bazaar. Adapted for the stage by Maxim Lardent and Poor Richard’s Players have adapted diary entries into a comic, touching story of how the only two people on earth will get along. Mark Twain’s The Diaries of Adam and Eve will be performed by Poor Richard’s Players at The Playhouse Sept. 24-Oct. 9.
The oldest story ever told is that of Adam and Eve. Mark Twain’s masterfully uncovering of their diary entries brought great insight to the type of people that lived in the Garden of Eden so many years ago. The play stars Lauren Tauber and Axel Knight.
When published in Harper’s Bazaar, “Eve’s Diary” was presented as “Their Husband’s Wives.” Harper and Brothers publishing house would publish Eve’s Diary as a book in June 1906.
