Defeated in battle and exiled from heaven, Satan burns in a lake of fire with his army of rebels around him. Consumed with envy, he plots his bitter revenge – to destroy God’s delight in his newest creation. During his hunt for Paradise on Earth, Satan sweet-talks his way out of hell and tricks his way across the universe to tempt Eve and seduce humanity. Paradise Lost, the greatest epic poem in the English language, is a richly theatrical vision of the Fall of Mankind. As exhilarating as it is profound, Milton’s extraordinary masterpiece is brought to life in Rupert Goold’s ambitious production which played to record audiences and huge acclaim when it was first presented in 2004. N.B. Due to the nature of the material, Paradise Lost contains scenes of nudity and is not suitable for younger children.

Unlike film, theatre doesn't have an official age classification organisation. That means all age recommendations are subjective and should be treated as guidelines unless otherwise stated. With this in mind, we ask you to use your judgement in regards to a show’s suitability prior to purchase. However, we are more than happy to help you make a decision.
