ORPHEUS DESCENDING

2019

STOCKWELL PLAYHOUSE

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. Orpheus Descending is a classic Tennessee Williams piece of writing.
