Acclaimed playwright Sarah Ruhl reimagines the myth of Orpheus and Eurydice through the eyes of its heroine. Dying too young on her wedding day, Eurydice must journey to the underworld, where she reunites with her father and struggles to remember her lost life. With contemporary characters, plot twists, enchanting music, and whimsical design, this play is a fresh look at a timeless love story.
“Rhapsodically beautiful. A weird and wonderful [play]—an inexpressibly moving theatrical fable about love, loss and the pleasures and pains of memory.” (The New York Times)
