In the role of a lifetime written especially for her, Canadian stage icon Lucy Peacock is Satan … as we’ve never seen Satan before. Seductive in snakeskin and as slick as a hi-tech guru, she makes a case for her unfair expulsion from heaven in this amusing and highly theatrical adaptation of Milton’s epic poem.
Richly infused with modern references and contemporary vernacular, Erin Shields’ witty script deftly highlights the original poem’s timeless potency and relevance. Centaur’s production features an outstanding Montreal cast of biblical stars that includes an unforgettable Amelia Sargisson as Eve, Michelle Rambharose in polar opposite role of Beelzebub, Marcel Jeanin as God, and Gabriel Lemire as His Son. Extremely physical and fiercely engaging, Paradise Lost is a modern ‘classical’ masterpiece.
Please note that there is a brief instance of nudity in this production.
