ORPHEUS DESCENDING
 

Menier Chocolate Factory & Theatr Clwyd co-production.



Tennessee Williams' Deep South American drama is directed by Theatr Clwyd’s Artistic Director Tamara Harvey (Home I'm Darling - National Theatre/Duke of York's). 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.
