Paradise

Paradise

Synopsis

A thrilling story of pride, glory and betrayal.

Kae Tempest, the astonishing writer, recording artist and performer, forges an epic new take on Greek legend. 

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.

Director Ian Rickson returns to the National Theatre following his acclaimed, sold-out runs of Translations.

The all-female company, with Lesley Sharp as Philoctetes, will perform amidst a dramatic wasteland designed by Rae Smith (War Horse, Barber Shop Chronicles).
