Thursday, 4th June from 7.00pm
Join us for an evening of theatre, music and dinner in The Ox Barn. A modern take on an ancient myth. A toe tapping evening…..looking for something a bit different…then this is it!
The Flanagan Collective and Gobbledigook Theatre are back with us for another unique piece of contemporary theatre, Eurydice. Inspired by the ancient myth of Orpheus and Eurydice. Alexander Wright and Phil Grainger (the creatives behind this extraordinary story) have rewritten this ancient myth as a modern day tale.
Wound from spoken word and live electronica, Eurydice is the other side to the Orpheus myth: an untold story retold for the modern day from her/the female perspective. Leni is 5 years old, holding a superman costume. Eurydice is about to walk in to the first day of the rest of her life. A story about being a daily superhero and not giving in to the stories we tell ourselves.
They’ll be fresh back from their tour of Australia…..Alexander Wright & Phil Grainger’s internationally award winning retelling of Eurydice, an ancient myth comes to Crayke. Created with Serena Manteghi and Casey Jay Andrews.
Eurydice premiered at Adelaide Fringe in 2019 where it went on to win Best Theatre at the festival. Since then the show has toured Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and run off Broadway, New York.
As profound as it is entertaining….Stage Whispers
