About ORPHEUS - A Tale of Ancient Gods and Late Night Karaoke

ORPHEUS

Words by Alexander G Flanagan-Wright

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.
