Orpheus

A tale of impossible, death-defying love told through hair-raising spoken word and soaring soul music, an award-winning retelling by The Flanagan Collective and Gobbledigook Theatre

29th May 2019 - 30th May 2019
7.30pm | £10

An internationally award-winning modern retelling of an ancient myth.

Dave is single and turning 30. He’s stood at the bar. Eurydice is a tree nymph. And Bruce Springsteen is on the juke box. A tale of impossible, death-defying love told through hair-raising spoken word and soaring soul music. The Flanagan Collective and Gobbledigook Theatre weave a world of dive bars, side streets and ancient gods.
