PARADISE LOST

by Erin Shields
A theatrical adaptation of John Milton’s Paradise Lost 
Director Jackie Maxwell
World première commissioned by the Stratford Festival

THE DEVIL WEARS SNAKESKIN.

Inspired by John Milton’s epic poem of the cosmic battle between good and evil, Satan’s revenge and the expulsion of Adam and Eve from the Garden of Eden, this ultra-contemporary new drama is fiercely engaging, irreverently funny and deeply moving.

This production draws on creative learning and development fostered in the Stratford Festivalʼs Laboratory.

Please be advised that there is a brief instance of full nudity in this production.

House Program: Paradise Lost


Support for the 2018 season of the Studio Theatre is generously provided by Sandra & Jim Pitblado.
