PARADISE LOST (LIES UNOPENED BESIDE ME) - LOST DOG
THEATRE

A one man staging of Milton’s epic poem Paradise Lost and not like whatever came into your head when you read the first bit of that sentence. Combining theatre, comedy and movement, this is a journey through the story of the creation of everything, condensed into 75 minutes. It is a show which brings you the highlights of this well-known but often forgotten story beginning with Lucifer’s rebellion and ending with Adam and Eve’s expulsion from the garden of Eden. A single man plays all the characters, creates all the scenes and, despite his best efforts, falls a little short of perfection.

Paradise Lost (lies unopened beside me) was shortlisted for a Total Theatre Award at Edinburgh Fringe Festival in August 2015. Co-commissioned by The Place and Battersea Arts Centre with further commissioning support from ICIA Bath University.

THE BOOKSHOP (CERT PG)

A woman in a small town in 1959 England decides, despite ruthless local opposition, to open a bookshop. By exposing the locals to cutting-edge literature of the day such as Nabokov’s ‘Lolita’ and Ray Bradbury’s ‘Farenheit 451’, she sows the seeds of an awakening in the conservative town.
