Eurydice is Sarah Ruhl's funny, heartbreaking and surreal take on the famous mythic love story. But instead of focusing on Orpheus, this play centers around a fascinating and complex woman who travels to the Underworld on her wedding day. There, she bonds her her father, put some sassy, speaking Stones in their place, and keeps the Lord of the Underworld at bay.
"In Eurydice, Sarah Ruhl reimagines the classic myth of Orpheus through the eyes of its heroine. Dying too young on her wedding day, Eurydice must journey to the underworld, where she reunites with her father and struggles to remember her lost love. With contemporary characters, ingenious plot twists, and breathtaking visual effects, the play is a fresh look at a timeless love story." [Concord Theatricals]
