Acclaimed dance-theatre show Paradise Lost (lies unopened beside me) is coming to the Lowry this week – and we’ve got two tickets to give away (including a pre- or post-show drink). The performance is based on John Milton’s epic poem, Paradise Lost, which dates back to the 17th century. However this performance sees Ben Duke, artistic director of the Lost Dog theatre and dance company, transforming the famous text into a one-man show with a difference. Award-winning Duke plays all the characters in the performance himself, and the show has been nominated for a South Bank Sky Arts Award for Dance. Read our full preview here.
