Eurydice by Sarah Ruhl, directed by Stephanie C. Cunningham.
Playwright Sarah Ruhl re-imagines the classic myth of Orpheus through the eyes of its heroine, Eurydice. Dying too young on her wedding day, she must journey to the underworld, where she reunites with her father and struggles to remember her lost love. All of her efforts to retrieve her humanity are frustrated by a “chorus of stones” and the Lord of the Underworld who has ominous plans for her. On the surface world, Orpheus strives to find the one perfect note that can reunite him with his love so that they may continue life together and never look back…
