Following runs at the New York Theatre Workshop and Canada’s Citadel Theatre, Anaïs Mitchell’s HADESTOWN has arrived in London’s Olivier Theatre.

The plot follows songwriter Orpheus and his muse Eurydice, living it up in the warmth of summertime. But as Winter approaches, the reality sets in that these young dreamers can’t survive on songs alone. Tempted by the promise of plenty, Eurydice is lured to the depths of industrial HADESTOWN. On a quest to save her, Orpheus journeys to the underworld where their trust in each other is put to a final test.

The cast for the National Theatre run features Sharif Afifi, Reeve Carney, André De Shields, Rosie Fletcher, Amber Gray, Beth Hinton-Lever, Carly Mercedes Dyer, Eva Noblezada, Seyi Omooba, Gloria Onitiri, Patrick Page, Aiesha Pease, Joseph Prouse, Jordan Shaw and Shaq Taylor.

The show features direction by Rachel Chavkin, whose previous musical hit, NATASHA, PIERRE AND THE GREAT COMET OF 1812, ran on Broadway in the 2017 season. HADESTOWN features design by Rachel Hauck, costumes by Michael Krass, lighting by Bradley King, sound design by Nevin Steinberg and Jessica Paz and choreography by David Neumann,

HADESTOWN runs at the National Theatre until 26th January.
