About this show

After the success of Pulitzer Prize nominee Sarah Ruhl's The Clean House in Philadelphia and New York, she returns with a modern tale of loss and love, heralded as "a magical play with gripping emotional potency" by The New York Times. With surprising plot twists, quirky humor, and an original musical score, Eurydice is the classic myth of Orpheus, retold from the heroine's point of view. On the day Eurydice is to marry her true love, Orpheus, a tragic misstep sends her plummeting to the surreal depths of the Underworld. Memories are forbidden in this world of the dead, but an unexpected reunion with her father vividly awakens Eurydice's mind with the love she felt in life. When Orpheus braves the gates of hell to find her, Eurydice must painfully decide whether to remain with her father or return to her Earthly loves.
