West Australian Premiere

ORPHEUS

Theatre / Spoken Word
GB
Scaled oprheus sq with tree
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. A world of dive bars, side streets, and ancient gods.

★★★★★ Broadway World
★★★★★ "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.
“Hell, yeah, this Orpheus is a hymn to love wrapped in a beautiful, magical, heart-pounding piece of high-stakes theatre, Bruce Springsteen singalong and all.” The Press
