Follow the familiar story of love and doubt intertwined, Eurydice & Orpheus. In “Eurydice,” Sarah Ruhl reimagines the classic myth of Orpheus 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 love, Orpheus. Heartbroken at the loss of his wife, Orpheus subsequently pursues Eurydice to the underworld and bargains with Hades to bring her back to the land of the living. These events are spelled out in the classic myth, but the ending leaves a little more up to the imagination. The traditional myth suggests that, on the way out of the underworld, Orpheus looked back at Eurydice out of his own fear that she was falling behind. But wait, says Sarah Ruhl in this play, perhaps it isn’t that simple — what if something else happened? What if Eurydice’s return was not accidental, but instead by design? With contemporary characters, ingenious plot twists, and breathtaking visual effects, the play is a fresh look at a timeless love story.
