The Flanagan Collective & Gobbledigook Theatre presents 

ORPHEUS

words by Alexander Wright
music by Phil Grainger

 

Internationally award winning modern re-teling 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.
