Freely based on the story of Genesis, "Children Of Eden" is a frank, heartfelt, and often humorous examination of the age-old conflict between parents and children. Adam, Eve, Noah and the "Father" who created them deal with the headstrong cataclysmic actions of their respective children. The show ultimately delivers a bittersweet but inspiring message: that "the hardest part of love... is letting go."

New Ticket Policy

As some of you may have heard, the Carolina Union has changed their policy on student groups selling tickets to events.  They now require that all purchases be made through the Carolina Union Box Office located on the first floor of the Frank Porter Graham Student Union, outside the entrance to the Great Hall.  This also means that Pauper will have to indefinitely suspend all reserves for productions as of this Thursday for online reservations and Friday for pit reservations.  Any reservations placed before that will be honored.  After that cut off time, tickets will be available on a first-come-first-serve basis from the Carolina Box Office.  Good news is you can now pay with Visa, MasterCard, UNC OneCard, check, or cash!
