'Paradise Lost (lies unopened beside me)' by Lost Dog Dance

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 the creation of everything; 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.

Touring Dorset with Artsreach, the counties touring arts charity, as part of the national rural dance initiative.
