World Premiere Comedy PARADISE LOST & FOUND Comes To Isle of Shoals
It’s the most depressing time of the year, so Isle of Shoals is bringing you a new play to lift your holiday spirits and help you cope with your existential fears of impending doom. "Paradise Lost & Found" is a brand new comedy by Tirosh Schneider, directed by Katie Young*. Jack Klugman (no, not the actor), a 49-year-old sunglasses salesman riddled with regrets. He arrives at the Pearly Gates of Heaven, only to discover that his file has gone missing, and his eternal fate now rests in the hands of an 18-year-old judge named Christina Clark. Together they sort through the events of Jack’s life, and ask what it means to be a good person in a world of imperfections.
The cast features Arya Kashyap, Colleen Litchfield*, Avery Nelson* and Pat Swearingen. The creative team includes Domitille Angoulvant (Scenic and Costume Design), Jon DeGaetano (Lighting Design), Rachel Kaplow (Stage Manager), Garrett Robin (Assistant Stage Manager) and Linda Elizabeth (Producer).
