Myths are stories that we tell again and again, and each retelling reflects the time in which it is told. Hadestown reimagines the myth of Orpheus and Eurydice in the light of industrialisation, climate change, and the 21st century.

In this practical workshop with Hadestown director, Rachel Chavkin, you will develop your own musical adaptation of a myth that you love. Working together, you will dramatise a pivotal moment in the story using music and song and share it at the end of the workshop.

If you are interested in directing, acting or musical theatre then this workshop is for you.
