About this show

Written over a 17-year period, and inspired by the Greek myth, Orpheus Descending tells the story of one man who willingly travels to hell to save his beloved. With unbridled yearning, a charismatic drifter and a middle-aged woman lift each other to unimaginable heights, only to fall with unimaginable results. Tennessee Williams' unsung masterpiece of love and loneliness is an epic story infused with humor, as timeless and heroic as the Greek god who lends it his name.
