Romance! Adventure! Murder! Aristocrat Eddie Spangler and valet Jeffrey must learn the meaning of these words and more in this new knockabout Edwardian comedy, fresh from a sell-out run at the 2017 Edinburgh Fringe. Delight in their capers, mix-ups, and the dead bodies left in their wake.

In life love doesn’t always run to the form guide…
4/1 Matt the gambler with a dysfunctional brain, heart and penis. Might need more experience
9/5 F. Paige the bookies favourite who is as shallow as she is devious, an obvious choice
20/1 Helen the outsider, a few skeletons in the closet but has experience if past doesn’t haunt her
7/2 Sam suffering from a broken marriage and loss but might have enough to take the spoils, safe hands

Adam & Eve is a startling new play about trust, feminism and the nature of accusations from award-winning Royal Court Young Writer Tim Cook.
