Paradise Teaser

“The heavier themes are explored with a deft touch, helped along by Rajan’s flawless transitions from character to character.” -Theaterscenes

For almost two decades Jacob Rajan and Justin Lewis have pursued their idea of the ‘Serious Laugh’- opening mouths with laughter in order to slip something serious in along with a love of mask and story. The company blends western theatrical traditions with eastern flavours and has been critically acclaimed for its use of live music, heightened theatricality, humour, pathos and great storytelling.
