Wright & Grainger: Orpheus

Profile image for Wright & Grainger: Orpheus

On Stage


Dave is single. He’s stood at the bar.
Eurydice is a tree nymph.
And Bruce Springsteen is on the juke box.

A tale of impossible, death-defying love told through hair raising spoken word and soaring acoustic soul music. Wright&Grainger weave a world of dive bars, side streets and ancient gods.

Since its creation in 2016, ORPHEUS has played over 500 shows in the UK and internationally – in festivals, cafes, gardens, railways arches, bars, tents, churches, yoga studios, boats, record shops, breweries, loft apartments and very occasionally, a theatre.

It’s won multiple awards including:

Best Theatre Fringeworld (2018)
Best Music Sydney Fringe (2019)
Beyond Words Dunedin Fringe (2019)
Best Theatre Adelaide Fringe (2023)
