The Shadow of Heaven is an explosive, hour-long journey through Milton’s epic poem, Paradise Lost, emphasising the work’s visceral, physical and musical qualities.

Describing Satan’s quest from the depths of hell up to the Garden of Eden – and his meeting with Eve – this highly imaginative adaptation seeks to present the theatrical dynamism at the heart of Milton’s seminal work; which he originally imagined as a piece of tragic theatre.

Written by John Milton, adapted by Al Seed and Judith Milligan
Directed by Al Seed and Judith Milligan
