“Extremely funny and stingingly contemporary.” -The Toronto Star

Erin Shield’s fiercely engaging, irreverently funny and deeply moving Governor General’s Award nominated play inspired by John Milton’s epic poem takes us to the depths of hell. The fallen angel Satan is plotting her revenge against the Almighty with a devious plan to corrupt his two newest creations, Adam and Eve. This witty, engaging, and moving feminist play is a fresh retelling of one of humanity’s biggest quandaries, the battle between good and evil. “Not your grandmother’s archetypes.”

Special thanks to the Belfry Theatre and Bard on the Beach for graciously supporting and advocating for the licensing rights to produce the first production in Western Canada.
Paradise Lost was commissioned by and received its world premiere at the Stratford Festival, Ontario, Canada on August 17, 2018 in the Studio Theatre. Antoni Cimilino, Artistic Director and Anita Gaffney, Executive Director. This will be the first production of Paradise Lost in Western Canada.
