Paradise Lost*** (Trinity Buoy Wharf, 1 June 2013)

Posted: June 3, 2013 in Theatre

Saturday afternoon in Docklands is becoming something of a habit; this time it is a promenade performance of John Milton’s epic poem. Milton can be a hard pill to swallow but here it is nicely sugared and rather enjoyable. The battle between good and evil is played out by an enthusiastic troupe of tomorrow’s Shakespeareans, giving it their all as if auditioning for one of the Bard’s great tragedies. Angelic young ladies, draped all in white, usher us around, offering us rather tasty angel cakes; one minute we are in Hell, the next in the Garden of Eden; both are rather cheaply realised, but it is the performers that matter more than the sets. Good fun.
