In Tennessee Williams’ re-imagining of the Orpheus myth, enigmatic young musician Val arrives in a backwards Southern town with his guitar, a snakeskin jacket, and a mysterious past. His fiery romance with Lady, a passionate older woman with a dying husband and secrets of her own, ignites a chain of events that reveals the hypocrisy and brutality of the community. ORPHEUS DESCENDING is a Southern Gothic fable that stands with the author’s greatest work.
