EURYDICE

a drama by Sarah Ruhl
Directed by Rick Lombardo**
SEP 14 - OCT 5/2008

Eurydice wants to speak to you. But she can’t speak your language anymore.

From the acclaimed playwright of The Clean House comes this beautiful and devastating story about love and choice. In Sarah Ruhl’s re-imagining of the Orpheus myth, Eurydice’s tragic misstep on her wedding day sends her tumbling into the depths of the Underworld, where she is reunited with her father. Memories are forbidden and language is altered in this world of the dead. Her father re-educates her, while her husband searches for a note she will hear. Will the three find the means to communicate across the divide between life and death?

“An enduringly appealing story of the tremendous power of love, and of its fragility.”
