Award-winning Pilot Theatre – in association with York Theatre Royal and Northern Stage – bring A Song for Ella Grey, Zoe Cooper’s new adaptation of David Almond’s award-winning novel contemporary retelling of the Orpheus myth, to York Theatre Royal from 20-24 February 2024.
Claire and her best friend, Ella Grey, are ordinary kids from ordinary families in an ordinary world. They and their friends fall in and out of love, play music and dance, stare at the stars, yearn for excitement, and have parties on the beautiful beaches of Northumberland. One day a stranger, a musician called Orpheus, appears on the beach, and entrances them all but particularly Ella.
A Song for Ella Grey is a tale of modern friends and ancient forces, a tale told since the dawn of time and told again today.
