"🟉🟉🟉🟉🟉 - Theatrical magic." GLAM ADELAIDE
"🟉🟉🟉🟉🟉 - Charming, uplifting… simple storytelling at its finest.” ." ADELAIDE ADVERTISER

This is an internationally award-winning modern retelling of an ancient myth.

Dave is single and turning 30. He’s stood at the bar. He spies Eurydice – a tree nymph – from across the room. And Bruce Springsteen is on the jukebox.

Orpheus is a tale of impossible, death-defying love in a world of dive bars, side streets and ancient gods, told through hair-raising spoken word and soaring soul music.


Suitable for audiences 13+ years.
