Do yourself a favour; give this a miss and read ‘Paradise Lost’ instead. Set in the garden of Eden (with an appropriately naked cast), this weak play offers only bland characters, a script devoid of invention and a ludicrously abrupt ending to its audience. It’s anything but a glimpse of Paradise, with a troubling, shallow portrayal of male / female relationships and lack of any kind of humour, drama or meaningful insight. The cast and crew need to chew on the fruit of knowledge for a while longer before they have another crack at theatre: Adam and Eve leave the garden of Eden at the end of the story, but plenty of audience members managed to escape long before they did.
