Paradise

London
Kae Tempest, the astonishing writer, recording artist and performer, forges an epic new take on Greek legend. The all-female company, with Lesley Sharp as Philoctetes, will perform amidst a dramatic wasteland designed by Rae Smith (War Horse, Barber Shop Chronicles).

SYNOPSIS: Philoctetes: once a celebrated wartime hero, now a wounded outcast on a desolate island. When a young soldier appears, his hope of escape comes with suspicion. And as an old enemy also emerges, he is faced with an even greater temptation: revenge.

Directed by Ian Rickson
