14 Feb-3 April 2005. A history of unrequited love - this play was first performed 10 years in Buenos Aires and, despite the odd break for other projects or to bring in fresh talent or new staging, has run continuously ever since. The Diary of Adam and Eve by Mark Twain was written by the two lead actors Miguel Angel Sol and Blanca Oteyza with director Manuel Gonzlez Gil. Taking place in two epochs, the story starts in Argentina during the late Fifties with the final radio transmission by Elosa, a Spanish writer and Dalmacio, a Uruguayan actor, adapting classic literature for use on the airwaves. The play then fast forwards to the present day, the year 2005, as Vicenta, a radio journalist interviews Dalmacio, the sole survivor of that now distant programme. This, the plays heart comes to life as these experiences are related from one generation to another brining with them all the sensations of love, old age, mankind, lasting friendships and the health of the soul. The whole is a work that is relatable to very different audiences and a fine example of the attractions of the theatre. Tickets cost between 25 and 80, and 20 on Wednesdays.
