Part of Dance 4’s Nottdance festival
There is a possibility that God made everything because he was terrified of doing nothing.
Lost Dog’s one man staging of Milton’s epic Paradise Lost is a journey through the story of the creation of everything condensed into 75 minutes.
Combining theatre, comedy and movement, the show 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) is for anyone who has ever created anything (a child, a garden, a paper aeroplane) and then had to watch that wonderful thing spiral out of control.
