The fourth play from the York Corpus Christi Plays deals with God banning Adam and Eve from tasting the fruit of the Tree of Knowledge. It is expanded from the second Chapter of Genesis. However, in the play, Eve has already been created; in the original verses, only Adam is present when God forbids him from eating the fruit.
The play was originally performed by the Fullers- who cleansed and purified wool and cloth. It's possible that these bleached clothes were used for costumes worn by Adam and Eve- reflecting their purity before their fall from grace.
