Paradise Lost is a fast-paced, witty and accessible modern retelling of John Milton’s classic story of humanity's fall from grace by award-winning playwright Tom Dulack.
After leading a rebellion of angels, Lucifer, has been banished from heaven. Now, beaten, vindictive and furious, Lucifer plots his revenge. He turns his eye to the Creator’s new world, a Paradise inhabited by creatures – male and female – made in His image. Adam and Eve have dominion over this garden of delight where they live in joy and happiness. Amidst all this bliss, is but one prohibition – they must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.
Lucifer and his minions Beelzebub and Sin sneak past Gabriel and his army of Angels undetected, to launch his plot. Targeting Eve, Lucifer charms her into believing that disobeying God is the way to an even greater Paradise with even more power, joy, and happiness. The rest is history.
John Milton explored Lucifer’s motivation in great detail, but what motivated Eve? This contemporary retelling of Paradise Lost asks the challenging question – Given all that Eve had, why did she fall so easily? And would we have responded any differently?
