About this show

Reportedly considered by Odets himself to be his best and most significant work, Paradise Lost is an intense family drama set amid the vast landscape of social and economic challenges faced during the Great Depression. How will financial misfortune affect the values, personalities, relationships and aspirations of the well-educated, middle-class Gordons and their close circle of friends? Odets's passionate characters speak with a fast-talking language that sings with big dreams and optimism for the future, despite daunting odds.
