What does Paradise look like? What does it smell like? And will it make you happy?

Margaret Perry’s new play brings together a group of women who join a pyramid selling scheme promoting a range of essential oils that soothe a myriad of life’s stresses. In Paradise, you’re your own boss. In Paradise, you could make a fortune. The women hope that they will find cures to the challenges in their own lives, but the road to Paradise is not so sure and smooth. This U.S. premiere of Paradise Now! is a funny and raging new play about ambition, exploitation and the search for connection in a fractured world.

ASL Interpretation: Sunday, June 9 at 2:00 pm at the Bank of New Hampshire Stage in Concord, NH.  Audiences using this service will have reserved seats at the front.

Running Time: 2 hr 20 minutes including intermission.

*Content Transparency: This play contains strong language, consumption of alcohol, themes of depression and anxiety, including a depiction of a panic attack, depiction of grief in relation to child loss, and singular description of homophobia and use of the word ‘pervert’ in a homophobic context.
