Paradise Lost

By Erin Shields

Paperback £17.99

Canadian playwright Erin Shields turns Heaven and Hell upside down in this witty, modern, feminist retelling of John Milton's epic poem about the first battle between good and evil.

The seventeenth century and present day are seamlessly intertwined as Satan vents to an audience about her frustration at being cast out of Heaven and her thoughts on oppression. When she finds out that God has created delicate new creatures called 'humans', she crafts a plan for revenge and betrayal on the Almighty.

Erin Shields's play Paradise Lost is a wickedly smart and funny exploration of the foundation of the universe, the slow process of evolution and the freedom of knowledge. The debate over right and wrong has never been so satisfying.
