“If paradise was half as nice then writer Brian Coyle would have no need to write a play that gripped the soul and gave it steely resolve to not allow the world to come down to this Pinter-esque dystopia….one of the most sublime shows to be staged…a play that is excellently delivered and unsettling enough to make you watch your step for a while as the theme of state alienation comes to bear.” Liverpool Sound and Vision Review 8.5/10  read full review

“The success of all three actors in developing and sustaining their characters immersed us deeply into the plot…. kept us fully engaged…I really enjoyed the show and would happily recommend it.” Sardines Review read full review

The original song “Paradise Road” was created for the show by Alun Parry, one of Liverpool’s most respected radical folk musicians. Hear it on the full trailer here, you can also watch our mini trailer and teaser!
