Review by Catherine Lamm

This may come as a shock to many, but God has a Scottish accent and sounds a lot like Sean Connery.

Be that as it may, we are taken down memory lane visiting Adam and Eve who first eat a deep-fried Mars bar before realizing the detrimental effect it has on her face and figure then tempting Adam with an apple pie and cider. He must know about apples but not about pie and cider.

We briefly visit Cane & Abel, the dinosaurs, ice age and everything up to the Olympics. Clichés abound. But as much as they make fun of themselves, they also take well-deserved shots at the Americans and the French.

The ensemble cast is competent and the script is more of a skit than a play. The humour is a little too predictable and lacks the sharpness of more intellectual approach. No blood is drawn and no offense taken.
