Performance date and time
Friday, 1st December 2017
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. a show for anyone who has created anything (child, garden, paper aeroplane) and then watched it spiral out of control. In 2016 Ben Duke won the national Dance critics award for Outstanding Male Performance for Paradise lost (lies unopened beside me). The show was shortlisted for a Total Theatre award at edinburgh Fringe Festival in august 2015 and for the South Bank Sky arts award for dance in 2016.
