About the Show

Classic Drama

A beautiful new adaptation of John Steinbeck’s iconic novel asks if it is possible to escape the mistakes of previous generations and choose your own course.

East of Eden is a re-imagining of the saga of Adam and Eve, and their sons Cain and Abel. Adam Trask is determined to build a new life and world for himself and his young wife, Cathy. Settling in California’s Salinas Valley, Cathy gives birth to twin boys. But a dark past, the seemingly inescapable sins of man (and woman), and the impending danger of World War I threaten their little corner of paradise. It is an American epic examining whether “good versus evil” is our great choice or our unavoidable fate. 

East of Eden contains situations and themes that may not be appropriate for all audiences.
East of Eden is presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc., New York.
