The timeless conflict between parents and children is at the centre of this musical from the creator of Wicked and Godspell. Inspired by the Book of Genesis, Stephen Schwartz’s Children of Eden traces humanity’s fall, from Adam and Eve to the story of Noah. This bold production updates the story to a shadowy future where society has unravelled. Moving, inspiring and blessed with Schwartz’s magic touch, this musical teaches us all about what it means to be human.
