Orpheus Descending Tickets

London Play
Orpheus Descending
Lady is trapped in a loveless marriage, surrounded by intolerant people, living a boring small-town life. But when a wild-eyed charismatic drifter appears, a new life of love and passion suddenly seem possible. Everything will change as certainty, conformity and tradition are ripped apart. Tennessee Williams' Deep South American drama is directed by Theatr Clwyd’s Artistic Director Tamara Harvey. Orpheus Descending began its life as Battle of Angels in 1940, and was first performed on Broadway in 1957. In 1959, Sidney Lumet directed the film adaptation, The Fugitive Kind, starring Marlon Brando and Anna Magnani. A Menier Chocolate Factory and Theatre Clwyd co-production.

    The play is understandably not well known, and quite challenging for the audience. The production was excellent and the acting powerful and direct. It was a worthwhile evening that made me think (always a good thing with the theatre), but I'm still not quite sure what to make of it. but I would happily go back to Menier Chocolate Factory for future shows.
