In a world where immortality is rife, power is corrupt, and nothing is a secret, there’s one thing everyone craves but no one can keep for long: youth.
Through a fusion of Greek mythology and folktale, this contemporary retelling offers a new perspective on love, loss and recovery. When Persephone, the young goddess of spring, leaves behind her sheltered childhood for the love of a stranger, she discovers a world far removed from the one she knew.
But how do you hold onto your innocence when you live forever?
Persephone is an original musical with a fresh voice on what it means to be a young woman in contemporary society. Join us at the Oxford Playhouse in November, for a blend of folk - rock music and contemporary dance as we tell a story of hope, strength and the complexity of human nature.
