    I'm so glad John Bavoso was covered by Unknown Playwrights. He has got a sharp, snappy sense of humor and is able to deliver some fantastic lines. I was crying - there are so many amazing one-liners in just 8 pages. And even though it's a comedy, there is such a big commentary on so many other things, including religion and relationships. This is a writer everyone needs to know.

    Such a clever play! Bavoso puts a spin on the classic story that is fresh, original, and just downright funny. There were several lines that had me laughing out loud. This play also has a ton of heart. Would be a great addition to any short play festival.

    What a delightful play about the fall of man. I enjoyed the banter between Adam and Steve and I know Steve’s new garden is one I’d be more than happy to be a part of if I could.
