SHOPPING CENTRE PARADISE

PRESENTED BY OUT OF THE WINGS
Part of Out of the Wings Festival 2021, a celebration of theatre in translation from the Spanish and Portuguese-speaking worlds.

Adam and Eve are in Paradise – a multi-storey shopping centre that claims to offer everything they want. They are presided over by the enigmatic proprietor, archangel Uriel, who tantalises them with choice. As their relationship strains at the edges, they grasp at the things that they think will solve their problems: a baby, a job, sandals that are the right shade of mustard. But Adam can’t afford anything, and Eve desires it all. Tempted by the prospect of a new life, and growing increasingly impatient with Adam’s apathetic state, Eve starts to question the value of love. A funny, searching play that asks how to be happy in a world that is constantly demanding us to want more.

Written by Laura Rubio Galletero (Spain), translated by Rachel Toogood. Directed by Sibylla Archdale Kalid.

The translation of Shopping Centre Paradise was made possible with support from the Fundación Sgae.


This performance is a reading and will take place with a live audience at Omnibus Theatre.

We are so excited to welcome you back through our doors.

We are committed to safely staging a small, but perfectly formed, programme of work while we are able. We understand that booking tickets for live events right now feels like a bit of a gamble.

We want to assure you that should Government guidance change before your event, prohibiting it from taking place, we will contact you and offer an immediate refund.

To keep you safe, we have new measures in line with Covid-19 guidelines. Please check out our Covid-19 Safety FAQs for full information on what to expect and how to prepare for your visit.
