Dámaso Rodriguez will direct the Depression-era family drama that will officially open March 26 and run through April 26.

Paradise Lost, according to the Intiman, "conjures a time when gangsters, dreamers, agitators and idealists formed the hopeful heart of the American Dream. This rarely produced classic takes us into the home of Leo and Clara Gordon, a middle-class family in the early days of the Great Depression. In these hardscrabble times, the ground is shifting beneath their feet. Relationships are fragile, the way of doing business is changing and, just outside their door, the precarious economy threatens to upend the world. For the Gordons, everything is at risk—except hope."
Designing Paradise Lost are scenic designer Tom Buderwitz, costume designer Leah Piehl, lighting designer L.B. Morse, sound designer Joseph Swartz, dialect coach Judith Shahn and fight choreographer Geoffrey Alm.
