About this event

Internationally award winning modern re-telling of an ancient myth by "two masters of storytelling" (Fourth Wall, 2019).

Dave is single. He's stood at the bar.
Eurydice is a tree nymph, an ancient goddess.
And Bruce Springsteen is on the jukebox.

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.

"Charming, uplifting…simple storytelling at its finest." ★★★★★ Adelaide Advertiser, 2019

"Theatrical Magic. I laughed, I cried, I loved it.

" ★★★★★ Glam Adelaide, 2019 "A true gem of a show who's praise I want to sing from the rooftops" ★★★★★ Voice Mag, 2018

Fringefeed reviews energised by Woodside

  • "ORPHEUS is utterly charming. It’s a cozy, romantic tale made relevant by two masters of storytelling. It is so cleverly told and rendered contemporary that no-one batters an eyelid when Dave stands by the river Styx – his journey taking him to the Ancient Greek locales of mythology. Therein the magic lies. Magic is real – it exists in our ability to create entire worlds through story and song." - The Fourth Wall

  • "Wright, who appears to read his story from an old, leather book, has beautiful emotion spiced with humour and humanity. Grainger, full and gentle, accompanies the story softly on guitar with his sweet songs – and some karaoke thrown in for our pleasure." - Seesaw
