Paradise Lost

A modern retelling of the story behind humanity’s fall from grace… all in 100 MINUTES!

Paradise Lost is a fast-paced, witty and accessible modern retelling of John Milton’s classic story of humanity’s fall from grace written by Tom Dulack (Kennedy Center Award). 
After leading a rebellion of angels, Lucifer (David Andrew MacdonaldRocky) has been banished from heaven. Now, beaten, vindictive and furious, Lucifer plots his revenge. He turns his eye to the Creator’s new world, a Paradise inhabited by creatures – male and female – made in His image.  Adam (Robbie Simpson, Afterglow) and Eve (Marina Shay, Miss Julie) have dominion over this garden of delight where they live in joy and happiness. Amidst all this bliss, is but one prohibition – they must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.

Lucifer and his minions Beelzebub (Lou Liberatore, TONY nominee) and Sin (Alison Fraser, Two-time TONY nominee) sneak past Gabriel (Mel Johnson Jr. On the Twenty Century) and his army of Angels undetected, to launch his plot. Targeting Eve, Lucifer charms her into believing that disobeying God is the way to an even greater Paradise with even more power, joy and happiness.  The rest is history.

Shadowlands

The Unlikely, True Love Story of C.S. Lewis and Joy Davidman

The smart, brash Joy bursts into Lewis’ sedate, middle-aged life and upends it. Lewis is as shocked as anyone to discover that he and Joy have fallen deeply in love – and then almost immediately he must contend with the equally deep pain of losing her when she is diagnosed with terminal cancer. Funny, poignant and insightful, Shadowlands — also an Oscar®-winning film — is a moving portrait of love and loss, faith and doubt, as inspired by Lewis’ own A Grief Observed.
