Jason Denvir & David Howe - Orpheus - The Mythical
Jason Denvir is the Set and Costume Designer and David Howe is the Lighting Designer for Orpheus – The Mythical this March at the Other Palace.
The young disabled students of the Orpheus Centre work the same magic as the original Orpheus – they make the world stop and listen. To celebrate the Centre’s 20th birthday, along with some of their alumni and recent graduates of Arts Educational School, they present Orpheus’ voyage to find the golden fleece and his doomed journey down to Hades to rescue his wife Euridice, while battling the efforts of the bored and wilful gods and an unreliable satnav.
The Greek Chorus will be played on different nights by a celebrity guest. Please see the full list below:
Fri 23 - Martin Jarvis
Sat 24 - Rob Brydon
Mon 26 - Patricia Hodge
Tue 27 - Jane Asher
Wed 28 - Charles Collingwood and Judy Bennett
