Theatre and Physical Theatre β€’ Spoken Word
United Kingdom
Internationally award winning modern retelling of an ancient greek 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.
