“Adam & Eva,” and “The Further Adventures of” 2 new plays

bookmark "Adam & Eva"We Met in Dublin: TOSOS presents The Further Adventures of… and Adam & Eva

They met in Dublin, now they’re meeting again in New York.

TOSOS (The Other Side of Silence), in association with Theater 167, presents two new plays, “Adam & Eva,” by Jack McMahon and Yasmin Zadeh, and “The Further Adventures of” by Kathleen Warnock at The West End Theater at the Church of St. Paul & St. Andrew, 263 W. 86th St., for 6 performances from Nov. 16-25.

“When we took ‘The Further Adventures of’ to the International Dublin Gay Theatre Festival in May, we shared the Players Theatre at Trinity College with ‘Adam & Eva’,” said TOSOS Artistic Director Mark Finley. “We loved Jack and Yasmin, and their show. So when we had a chance to work with them in NYC, we did everything we could to make it happen.”bookmark posted of The Further Adventures of"

Theater 167, a resident company at the church, stepped in to provide the space on the dark nights of their upcoming production, and the Dublin duo had a New York City home.

Directed by Eric Chase, “The Further Adventures of” starring Tim Burke, Mark Finley and Jamie Heinlein, tells the story of a little girl who grows up to be a writer (and a lesbian). Follow Maggie Day as she uncovers the story of Commander Zoron and Prince Kal in the ’50s sci-fi serial, Atlantis, 1 Million Years B.C., and learns about the actors who portrayed them, Drake Darling and Frank Gallagher, and follows their paths from a classic sci-fi show to the age of the internet, revealing hidden secrets, lost loves, and the things people couldn’t say then (and maybe even now?)

Temporary Theatre’s “Adam & Eva” is written and performed by McMahon and Zadeh, and tells the story of Adam, who wants to be a nun and Eva, who wants to be a boy. Together, the two of them navigate the coming out process, from their first visit to a gay bar to the horrific consequences of homophobia and gay-bashing.

Performances are Mon-Wed at 7pm, from Nov. 16-18, and Nov. 23-25. Tickets are available at and cash only at the door.
