TOOT’s Orpheus


Jill Lamède

Illustrated by Marietta Everett

A famous Greek myth
adapted as a comic-tragedy
for children.

The book includes an acting script and sheet music.

(PDF version available on request)

TOOT, a small travelling theatre company, and the company dog, HoneyBee, arrive at a primary school to perform their comic version of the Greek myth of Orpheus in the underworld.
The story includes a singing rabbit!

TOOT is a real theatre company and we toured our version of Orpheus all over Oxfordshire to great acclaim. Both children and adults loved the show, and teachers were so delighted to have an accessible way to introduce discussion of death and loss that they asked me to write this book.
