Ashley Smith

in The Shadow of Heaven Image Description

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.

This production springs from the long-term collaboration of Al Seed and Judith Milligan, who have spent the past two years exploring the interplay between the theatrical forms of Tragedy and Bouffon.

Showing at Macrobert Arts Centre, Stirling, from 12th until 13th April, and the Tron Theatre, Glasgow, from 17th until 18th April.
