Sara Ruhl is one of the most important and inventive American playwrights working today. In Eurydice, 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. With contemporary characters, ingenious plot twists and bold theatricality, the play is a fresh look at a timeless love story.
