Paradise Lost

presented by Lost Dog as part of Derby Book Festival

A one-man staging of Milton's epic 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 creation of everything; a show for anyone who has created anything (child, garden, paper aeroplane) and then watched it spiral out of control.

Funny, moving and thought-provoking, Paradise Lost has received rave reviews since its debut; performer Ben Duke also won the National Dance Award for Outstanding Male Performance in January, and the show is currently nominated for a South Bank Sky Arts Award.

PLEASE NOTE: Suitable for ages 14+ - contains infrequent strong language.


★★★★ “Witty text and angular dance render conflicts as personal and most profound”
The Herald

★★★★★ “The comedy is divine, but the images of love and loss are achingly human”
The Independent

Suitable for ages 14+. Parental guidance advised - contains strong language.

★★★★ “Comic yet touching”
The Times

★★★★★ A heavenly new take on Milton
