ORPHEUS DESCENDING
Tennessee Williams' modern version of the myth of Orpheus and Eurydice is set in the American South of repressed desires.  Guitar-playing drifter Val Xavier (Harold) arrives in a small town looking for work and the opportunity to renounce his wild ways, where he meets Lady Torrance (Crosby), a woman with a tragic past who is trapped in a bad marriage and longs for rebirth.  Known as one of Williams' darker and more complex plays, ORPHEUS DESCENDING explores the power of passion, art, and imagination to redeem life and return it to meaning.

Gale Harold (Queer as Folk), Denise Crosby (Star Trek TNG), and cover girl-turned-actress Claudia Mason (Vogue, Elle, W, Cosmopolitan) head the cast of Tennessee Williams' rarely produced classic, ORPHEUS DESCENDING.  Rounding out the ensemble are stage veterans Robert E. Beckwith, Curtis C., Francesca Casale, John Gleeson Connolly, Kelly Ebsary, Andy Forrest, Sheila Shaw and Geoffrey Wade.  Independent filmmaker Lou Pepe (Lost in La Mancha) directs and Ginger Perkins produces.

ORPHEUS DESCENDING opened on Broadway in 1957 with Maureen Stapleton and Cliff Robertson.  In 1959, Williams and Meade Roberts turned the script into the film THE FUGITIVE KIND, starring Marlon Brando, Anna Magnani, Joanne Woodward and Maureen Stapleton.
