The internationally award-winning modern retelling of an ancient myth is on tour in Aotearoa for the very first time!

Dave is single and turning 30. He’s stood at the bar.
Eurydice is a tree nymph.
And Bruce Springsteen is on the jukebox.

A tale of impossible, death-defying love told through hair raising spoken word and soaring soul music.

Two of the UK's most innovative performers Alexander Flanagan-Wright and Phil Grainger weave together a world of dive bars, side streets and ancient gods.
