WATERVILLE — The Thomas College Players will presents its spring production “The Diaries of Adam & Eve” at 6 p.m. April 15 and 16 in the Ayotte Auditorium at Thomas College. The event is free and open to the public.

The play was written by Mark Twain and adapted by Paul Barnes, Director of the Thomas College Players.

“I read this play in high school and fell in love with it! I put it on the back burner as a play I’d like to be in someday … well that day never came, and then all of sudden here I am faced with the dilemma of a two person play so immediately I thought of this one,” said Barnes, a Waterville Junior High school teacher and long-time director and actor, said in a news release from the college.

“The Diaries of Adam & Eve” was written by Mark Twain and was intended to reflect the humorous relationship between the first man and the first woman and to show how modern couples face the same if not similar issues.

The play stars Katey Smith, who gives an accurate portrayal of Eve. She captures Eve’s innocence as well as her wisdom. Adam is played by Nathaniel Grindstaff, who faces the daunting task of being the first man created by God.
