The Apple Tree

 

Review


Almost all theatre has at one time or another tried to make satire of the glaring characteristics that separate men and women. Most times, though, it’s usually just crude oversimplifications of our most obvious ‘under the clothing’ predispositions. It’s refreshing when you find something different; art that plays on our differences in an intelligent way. For instance, The Apple Tree—a heart-warming account of the biblical tale of Adam and Eve. On day one, Adam is brought to life and given the mandate of naming all the animals. However, on day two, he meets Eve and everything changes. As the show unfolds, Adam and Eve wrestle with what makes them so innately different; Eve wants to decorate their shelter with flowers while Adam’s content with just living under some wood. While the show certainly has moments of humour, they’re not the kind of moments that make you erupt wildly in laughter. They’re more the type that makes you tilt your head to the side and say “aww.” It is, however, enjoyable to see a creative take on an old familiar theme. Overall, the lead’s musical chops and relatable dialogue definitely render The Apple Tree worthy of a watch. Reviewed by Kass Mitchell.
