EURYDICE by Sarah Ruhl
Pulitzer Prize-finalist and renowned playwright Sarah Ruhl reimagines one of the oldest myths in Eurydice, a tale of lost love and irrevocable choices. Turning the Orpheus myth on its head, this new version follows Eurydice on a journey into a Wonderland-esque Underworld, where she comes up against a Greek chorus of talking stones and the Lord of the Underworld himself. When her husband Orpheus comes to rescue her, the two must grapple with a reality neither of them could have ever dreamed of.
