Adam & Eve in the Garden of Delights, or Love a wicked comedy by Alejandro de la Costa, World Premiere May 28 - June 14, 2009
The original war of the sexes. We all know the story of Adam and Eve, the apple and the snake. What if the snake were a person, and not just any person, but a hunk of a man with no morals whose main purpose is to seduce either Adam or Eve? This religiously incorrect retelling of what happened in the Garden of Eden is outrageous, scandalous, and oh so sexy. For mature audiences only due to sexual situations, general misbehaviour, and nudity. To purchase tickets click here.

Jason Clements, Adam: I am from Allen TX, where in junior high through high school I played football until blowing out my knee and decided to take on a new challenge of acting in plays. After graduating from high school I decided to go to the infamous Collin County Community College to continue my acting training and general education classes. After doing some amazing shows at Quad C such as “The Rocky Horror ‘Puppet’ Show”, “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”, “All’s Well That Ends Well”, and “Lil Abner”; I decided to take a stab at getting my bachelor’s by going to the Oklahoma City University. I am a rising senior BFA acing student at OCU. There I have studied Shakespeare, Greek Tragedy and Restoration Comedy. I have also studied accents and stage combat. While studying stage combat I was certified by the School of Stage Combat in both hand to hand and Rapier. On the side of studying through the school I have also been doing outside study. I have recently been studying some Russian Movement with Stephen Ochsner, a fellow student, who went to Moscow for a semester and is teaching what he learned. Alongside all of this I am also a proud member of The Victims Improv troupe. I have been working with them for about a year now and learned with show and rehearsal. I recently performed in the Gainesville Improv Festival with them. I perform with them every chance I get. I would like to thank my family for always supporting me even though they may not understand it. I would also like to thank my mentors, from teachers who befriend me to friends who teach me, you ideas and thoughts always keep my spirit willing to go further. One of the sins of the Seven Deadly Sins that I tend to committed all the time is gluttony. I like to eat. Sometimes I eat a lot. Usually when I come home from college and my parents want to take me out for a big dinner or make a large homemade meal. After eating bland noodles and peanut butter for a week a hot meal of anything with some taste is treasure. The ironic thing about all of this is that when my family sits down to eat I’m usually the fastest eater and the one that is last at the table. The first time I had sex I thought to myself a multitude of ideas, emotions, and ponderings. There was the first Yes! Finally! Woo! Then there was a feeling similar to partner stretching. It’s sweaty, kind of awkward, and painful in some places, good in others. Similar noises as well. Then after it was all said and done. There was this moment of relief, regret, and of growing into a man.
Lisa D’Alesandro, Eva: I I am super excited to be working with Mark-Brian again. I was last seen in “A New Drama” right here at the lovely Stone Cottage. I’ve been acting since high school, but aspiring to do so for as long as I can remember. I attended Providence College for a Bachelor’s Degree in Theatre where I performed in several productions from Cassandra in “Agamemnon” to Isabelle in “My Sister in This House.” In 2005, I was one of a few actors chosen to perform in the school's Presidential Inauguration Ceremony. I was also a working member of the scene shop and participated on the crew of many productions. After receiving my degree, I lived in Rhode Island for about a year and a half dallying with various ideas of how to use it. I worked as a telemarketer for the Gamm Theatre selling season subscriptions. I now have a moderately severe phobia of making phone calls. I volunteered on a student film project called “West Run” where it made me feel strangely superior and dangerous to smoke cigarettes. (I quit shortly after, though thoughts of the film rekindle a nostalgic temptation for the old). I worked as Property Master at PC for a few shows including “Amadeus” and “Noises Off.” Being hired as a private contractor is a delightful feeling. I now have a pair of jeans with strange nibble-like holes in them where I spilt super glue and thought it would just peal right off (not correct; not without the fabric at least). My prized creation is an axe I carved out of wood, painted, and affixed to a broken piece of door. Coolness. In every sense. All in all, I love to create: theatre, film, music...beautiful. Since moving back to Texas, I have performed with the Stolen Shakespeare Guild, done some work in a film short, and am now on my second production with MBS. Cheers! Let’s see, I don’t know if this is the funniest “sin” I’ve ever committed, but it’s definitely on my most memorable list. One evening some friends and I broke into a (let’s say) nameless Ivy-league University’s football field with the intention of playing an innocent game of catch, but after a bit, we found a golf cart under the stands and decided to hotwire it so we could go for a spin around the field. Quite a spin, actually, haha. Eek, wait, I made that up. I don’t sin Mark-Brian. Not sure what you’re talking about… ;) The first time I had sex I thought to myself…years from now I’m going to be writing about this moment in a play program, so make it count! Yup, that’s exact. Exactly exact. If you don’t believe me, you best be skilled in hypnosis!
JP Cano, Serpentem: I was raised in my hometown Parral, Mexico and I appeared in some elementary and high school plays and pastorelas (Mexican Christmas play). After I finished high school on 1998, I moved to Juarez, Mexico, where I studied 4 years of medical school, but at the same time I played in a series of unforgettable Mexican plays with the University of Juarez’ Theater Group starting with “Ajua! Un Huerco va a nacer (Xmas play),”in 1998 and “Hasta el Domingo (I will see you ‘til Sunday)” in 1999. The same year I appeared in a small role in the independent short film “Libertad Perdida”. On 2002 I returned to participate in the Mexican comedy “Matrimonio y Mortaja”. I did different training and classes every year thru the university. I also got some training with Bellas Artes of Juarez in Caribbean rhythms. On 2004 I did an important role in “Opción Múltiple (Multiple Option),” which won the third place in the North Mexico Theater Festival, and also won first place as best director (Cesar Cabrera). Since 2005 I reside in Dallas, TX and I have been working with Teatro Dallas and Director Cora Cardona. I started with "La Máscara que Hablaba” which is directed by Cora Cardona and had been very well received by the audience. By the end of 2008 I was part of the cast of "Don Juan, the Vampire" with the role of "Ciutti" (Teatro Dallas as well). Recently, on April 2009 I started to be the host of the Spanish internet-radio show "Fresas con Crema", which have been increasing my experience on radio and of course in comedy. The funniest sin that I have commited was cheating on the metaphysics exam, I use to HATE that class.
The first time I had sex I thought to myself ... this is the best thing ever, of course, after eat and sleep.
