WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Author of the Alley's outstanding success The Clean House, Sarah Ruhl creates a tale based on the Greek myth of Orpheus that is "exhilarating" as "we enter a surreal world, as lush and limpid as a dream" (The New Yorker). On the day Eurydice is to marry her true love Orpheus, a misstep sends her to the surreal depths of the Underworld, where she has a surprising reunion and ultimately must decide whether to follow Orpheus back to the land of the living. The New York Times described Eurydice as "a magical play with gripping emotional potency...a love letter to the world..." Mature Audiences.
