Orpheus Descending

Until July 6, 2019

First debuting under the name Battle of The Angels in 1940, Tennessee Williams' searing portrait of prejudice and bigotry in the deep South was lost on initial audiences, but its poetic melodrama later packed a punch on Broadway in 1957 under a new name. A collaboration between the Menier Chocolate Factory and Welsh regional theatre Theatr Clwyd, Orpheus Descending enjoys a strictly limited run at the Menier this Summer, helmed by by Theatre Clwyd's artistic director Tamara Harvey.
