Orpheus

Joanne Hartstone, The Flanagan Collective & Gobbledigook Theatre, and Holden Street Theatres present

"ORPHEUS" is written in a graphic arrangement of bold, capitalised letters in bright yellow against a dark blue background. The letters “ORPH” are stacked on top of the letters “EUS”. Below the letter “O” a trunk of a tree extends with a network of branches and oak leaves.


ADELAIDE FRINGE 2019 REVIEWS


"★★★★★ - Holden St Theatres has a belter on its hands...Exceptional." - The Advertiser

"★★★★★ - I laughed. I cried. I loved it" - GLAM Adelaide

"Orpheus is the perfect example of how powerful words, story telling and music can be...Go and see this show – you won’t regret it." - Stage Whispers


The Flanagan Collective & Gobbledigook Theatre present an internationally award-winning modern retelling of an ancient myth.

Dave is single and turning 30. He’s stood at the bar. He spies her from across the bar - Eurydice, who is a tree nymph. 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.

Orpheus is the brother production to Eurydice, also on at HST throughout Adelaide Fringe 2019.
