Orpheus is doing stand-up for the gods.
A sharp new take on a classic Greek myth, this is a bitterly funny story of love, loss and eating your way out of grief. As the audience are transformed into the gods of legend, will Orpheus ever escape his past?
Martin Bonger’s gripping solo performance is a black comedy that bridges the everyday with the celestial.
There might even be a song.
Winner of the VAULT Festival Pick of the Year Award.
First performed at Ovalhouse in July 2014. Created in association with North Wall Oxford, Live Theatre Newcastle and South Street, Reading.
