Paradise Lost

Lucifer stands on top of the sun.

By John Milton. Adapted for the stage by Ben Power. Directed by Rupert Goold.

In association with The Royal and Derngate Theatres, Northampton and Watford Palace Theatre.

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.

  • Better to reign in Hell, than serve in Heaven
