Orpheus is Little Bulb’s most ambitious show to date. Its concept is sprawling to the point of confusion, but at base it is a classic play-within-a-play. The talented troupe plays a group of 1930s French musicians who are performing Orpheus. The legendary jazz guitarist Django Reinhardt (played by a dextrous if slightly uncharismatic Dominic Conway) takes the role of the tragic hero. His lover Eurydice is played by our ‘ostess Yvette (Eugenie Pastor), a Piaf-style chanteuse with permanently surprised eyebrows and vowels straight out of Allo Allo.
