Orpheus Descending

The lesser-known Tennessee Williams' play retelling the Greek legend Orpheus plays at the Menier Chocolate Factory for a limited run. 

Lady is trapped in a loveless marriage, surrounded by a dying husband and 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.

Did you know?

Hattie Morahan will lead the cast as Lady whose theatre credits include A Dolls’s House at the Duke of York’s Theatre and The Changeling at Shakespeare’s Globe.

The first performance of Orpheus Descending was at the Martin Beck Theatre on Broadway in 1957.
