About this show

Cradle of Man, a new dramatic comedy by Melanie Marnich, is set in Africa near Olduvai Gorge, the birthplace of mankind, where two American couples meet and their comedic, romantic and existential crises are exposed. Facades crack under the sub-equatorial sun to reveal the evolution of the human heart. Lives come apart and bodies come together in this extraordinary place, where the drama of what makes us human - and humane - plays out on a daily basis. And where the survival of the fittest means only one couple will survive. David Eigenberg, the popular actor of stage and screen best known as Miranda's boyfriend Steve on HBO's Sex in the City, stars.
