From the acclaimed playwright of last season's Helen Hayes-nominated Melancholy Play: A Contemporary Farce comes a fresh reimagining of the classic Orpheus myth, told through the eyes of its heroine. On her wedding day, Eurydice falls victim to a tragic accident that sends her hurtling into the Underworld, erasing her memory and reuniting her with her long-dead father. Orpheus journeys to retrieve his bride, but Eurydice is torn between her desire to rejoin him in the real world and the tender relationship she has rediscovered with her father in the afterlife. Brimming with lyrical beauty, original music, and Ruhl's trademark wit, Eurydice is a visceral and surrealist meditation on love worth grieving for.
