"The Battle of the Sexes: Round One"
by Fred Passmore copyight 2003

Synopsis: In this “post-fig leaf” script, the world’s first couple hit their first speed bump on the road to marital bliss. After being evicted from the Garden of Eden, will they ever get over blaming each other? About 10 minutes in length, this light, humorous, but ultimately touching skit, is great anytime, but perfect for Valentine’s Day.

Characters: Adam and Eve.

Costumes: primitive-looking animal skins. Use brown cloth cut raggedly and fitted in crude tunics. Fake fur can be obtained from craft stores to make them more realistic. This can be worn over leotards for modesty's sake and also for a humorous effect.

Props: a stick, an inch or two in width and several feet in length. A large python-like stuffed-toy snake like those awarded as prizes in carnivals, or bought at toy stores. Attach a string to the head and run the string across the stage before the sketch. Assign someone to pull it out from the opposite side toward the middle when called for in the script.

Setting: Several artificial trees and plants lined up to resemble a jungle.
