A modern telling of the Orpheus myth, Eurydice takes you on a journey to the hereafter. With its chorus of talking stones and its tricycle-riding Lord of the Underworld, this afterlife may as well be Alice's Wonderland! After taking a dip in the River of Forgetfulness, Eurydice stumbles upon her deceased father, only to mistake him for a hotel bellman. Over time, father and daughter fight the natural order of death itself to rediscover their primal bond. But when a lovelorn Orpheus descends into the underworld to retrieve his beloved, Eurydice must make a difficult choice. Come see why The New Yorker's John Lahr describes Ruhl's work as "full of astonishments, surprises, and mysteries."

No late seating allowed. Join a talk back with the actors and director after the Wednesday performance.
