Morningstar: Hamilton Gardens Arts Festival 2020

The war in heaven has just begun.

Set against the backdrop of Heaven and Eden after its first year of creation, we meet one of the most famous families in history as they reunite. At the dawn of time this devoted family is left wondering, where has their Father gone?

Having created Eden their job now is to keep the family together, but for the two elder brothers it is no easy task. One seeks to maintain the law of tradition, the other craves change. Their conflict so great it divides the Host of Heaven. The split that ensues threatens all that they know, with each sibling forced to take sides. The situation is only heightened by the fact that the two elder brothers are the Archangels Michael the Protector and Lucifer the Light Bearer. Father has to be found, ‘come Hell or high water’ and Lucifer plans to find him.

This intriguing and relatable retelling of an ancient Biblical story will make you think during the performance and well beyond.

“…something very very special indeed. I loved it.” – Broadway World
