The Clay of Eden is based on the biblical account of Adam and Eve however modernised into a contemporary setting. Although the specifics have been altered, the basic story has been attempted to run in parallel.
The Clay of Eden began its life as a concept album by writer and musician, Rustee. It has since then been adapted into a film script and stage play.
In a modern age, Adam, a son born from rich opulence meets Eve, a humble yet beautiful and wonderfully talented dancer. The devil is portrayed by Viper, a close friend of Adam’s yet with a dark and mysterious past and infamy. The tree of the knowledge of good and evil has become flesh in the form of a man, the ‘Dealer’ and the golden apple, a pill. The guitarist is an ever-present guardian angel who never speaks and can not be seen by the cast.
