Paradise Lost - Abi Titmuss stars

Paradise Lost

Preview by Lizzie Guilfoyle

THE TAPESTRY Theatre Company is presenting Paradise Lost, starring Abi Titmuss, at Leicester Square Theatre – from October 19 to October 23, 2010.

Paradise Lost focuses on six individuals, bound together through partnerships, secrets and scandal, and revolves around the complex relationships that people develop – sisterly rivalry, unrequited love, troubled marriages and infidelity.

However, destruction strikes when all is revealed as the group gather around an Ouija board.

Titmuss, who achieved critical acclaim in her performances at The Edinburgh Fringe Festival this year, plays Suzie, a lesbian who enters into an adulterous relationship with a married woman.

Although best known for her numerous appearances in newspapers and magazines such as The Sunday Times Style, Heat, Closer, GQ and FHM, former nurse Abi Titmuss made her West End acting debut in March 2006 in the Arthur Miller play Two Way Mirror, for which she won the Fringe Report Award for Best Debut.

She has subsequently appeared in Fat Christ (King’s Head Theatre), Macbeth (touring production), Stage Fright (Canal Cafe Theatre) and Dolly Daydream (Barons Court Theatre).

Paradise Lost is written by actress and playwright Vicki McKellar, who set up The Tapestry Theatre Company in 2007 and plays Titmuss’ lesbian lover in the production.

She said: “I’m thrilled to put on my first show at the West End, with an accomplished actress like Abi Titmuss performing on stage alongside me. Paradise Lost has been a labour of love for me and I hope the audience will find the production a thoroughly riveting and enjoyable production.”

The Tapestry Theatre Company’s other work includes The Maiden’s Prayer which had a successful run at The Lion and Unicorn Theatre.

Tickets: £12 – £15.

Time: 7pm.
