Orpheus

Theatre / Spoken Word
GB
Scaled oprheus adelaide 19 imge
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.


★★★★★ "A true gem of a show who's praise I want to sing from the rooftops" VoiceMag.

★★★★ "Charming, uplifting...simple storytelling at its finest." The Advertiser.

Winner, Adelaide Fringe Best Theatre Award (Weekly).

Winner, VAULT Festival Summerhall Award.
