Paradise Now! is a funny and raging new play about ambition, exploitation and the search for connection in a fractured world.
A new Bush Theatre commission by Margaret Perry (Collapsible) in an exciting collaboration with director Jaz Woodcock-Stewart (Civilisation), Paradise Now! features an all-female ensemble cast.
Paradise Now! is playing at the Bush Theatre in London from 2 December 2022 to 21 January 2023.
What's the story of Paradise Now!?
Gabriel Dolan’s never been up to much. That’s what everyone says. Until she meets Alex, a young, ambitious woman who sells essential oils for a multi-level marketing company called Paradise, and overnight, she is drawn into a bright new floral-scented world.
In Paradise, you’re your own boss. In Paradise, you could make a fortune. Embraced by a new community of women just like her, Gabriel rises through the ranks of the company like a shooting star.
But when she gets to the top, it doesn’t quite feel like she thought it would.
