Taking The Stage: EDEM the musical
Deep in the Nigerian rainforest lies the mythical kingdom of Edem. Where locals say, in the beginning two humans once lived but were banished. The Creator seeing how gracious the trees were decided not to destroy the Earth but to make his trees in his own image, They begged for forgiveness but the Creator declined Adam in anger but took pity on Eve. The Creator offered Eve an alternative. Sacrifice her humanity and become one with the world of Edem or follow Adam to eternal exile. Eve chose to re-enter the Kingdom and so became Emem – mother earth. And so the world of Edem was created with Edem being the natural source to life on earth. However this world is in grave danger, as the oil spills are destroying its very infrastructure. The prophecy of the Son of Adam returning to save the kingdom comes to light as Andrew, the son of an oil rig owner gets lost in the rainforest and finds his way to Edem's doorstep. As the oils' destruction spreads Andrew accepts his calling and has to return to earth and to stop the drilling.
