The Climate of Eden
Cast: 8 men, 5 women: 13 total
Based on Edgar Mittelholzer's novel, Shadows Move Among Them. "It is original and inspiring." —NY Times.
Book/Item: The Climate of Eden
THE STORY: A family of missionaries live in the jungles of British Guiana, where they have worked out an unconventional philosophy of life based on a practical compromise with civilization. Religion and morality are tempered with humor and tolerance. To this happy household comes Gregory Hawke, a young man who suffers from various complexes and neuroses. He joins the family, hoping that their simple way of life will cure him. He falls in love with one of the daughters and ultimately takes her with him after his recovery. His relations with the younger daughter, while helpful in enabling her to grow from childhood into adulthood, are more complex and revealing. The bald plot gives one no idea of the rich complexity of the situations nor of the charm and excitement of many of the scenes. The basis of the philosophy of the play is that genuine love and affection go far toward solving some of the problems of modern civilization.
