An internationally award winning retelling of the ancient greek myth between side streets, dive bars, karaoke joints and ancient gods. Woven from searing spoken word and soaring live acoustic soul music, ORPHEUS is a story about falling in love and how far you’d go.
ORPHEUS has toured across the UK, Australia, New Zealand and Bali, as well playing Off Broad-way in New York - racking up over 300 shows across the world.
