Come to get fed... stay to get nourished.
…a place of bliss
In the Purlieues of Heav'n, and therein placed
A race of Upstart Creatures
Paradise Lost, Book 2, Lines 832-4
The Upstarts didn’t mean to start a theatre company. But after rehearsing Paradise Lost for six months, collaborating on the epic task of adapting Milton's canonical work and planning the menu for the multi-course, mouth-watering meals that were incorporated into the day-long event, we realized we missed each other. And that we had something special going.
