Paradise Lost  | Open: 02/27/10 Close: 03/20/10
In Paradise Lost, the American economy is on the edge of catastrophe and futures are at risk. The Gordon family, losing all they have worked for, strive to preserve their trust in each other and in the promise of their nation. Odets considered Paradise Lost to be the favorite of his plays.  First produced by the Group Theatre in 1935, the play voices the suffering, hope, and shattered dreams of a country in the throes of financial crisis. Three-quarters of a century later, Americans are still wrestling with the demons of nihilism and idealism, charity and greed, self-interest and compassion.
