Full-length play. 2M, 1F with poss. chorus. Very witty dialogue. A talented trio of young actors could pull this off, or plunder it for good exam dialogues. Based on Mark Twain’s story.
A great fun version of the familiar story, with witty dialogue and humour. The play does not ignore the darker side of the story: Lucifer, the expulsion from Eden and the murder of Abel by his brother.
Its suitability for examination purposes, although it is a full-length play, is that it is easy to pick and choose scenes which will hang together, without losing the story-line.
