From the adaptor:
“The mind is its own place, and in itself / Can make a Heaven of Hell, a Hell of Heaven.” So too, does the mind determine the threshold between good and evil, but is it clear to everyone else? Adapted for the stage by Mike Cheung, John Milton’s Paradise Lost (1667) renders biblical figures in non-biblical terms, unfolding Satan’s motivations and how his primordial choices reverberate throughout creation. Stand or fall, deciding when affects us all.

Adapted by: Mike Cheung
Directed by: Hollie Pryor

Stage Rage was originally conceptualized in 2014 by Megan Tripaldi and Beth Somerville in Portland, ME with the creepiest production of King Lear (at least that we had seen). From there they have been generating projects that create original concepts for established work (pretty much just Shakespeare in this category) or creating and supporting new and exciting work from local artists. 

Stage Rage: (n.) a form of “stage blackout” when your character totally and completely takes over. We make strong, bold choices and encourage you all to do the same.
