“Eurydice” as imagined by Sarah Ruhl is a contemporary, theatrical event that explores the power and limits of love, loss and memory.
Eurydice leaves her wedding for the underworld, searching for her father but the reunion is costly. Trapped on the opposite side of death, Orpheus fights to retrieve his bride, making a deal that seals both their fates. Celebrated by the New York Times as a “weird and wonderful new play,” playwright Sarah Ruhl explores the ancient Greek myth from the female perspective and with a fresh eye.
