Eurydice

Storrs Campus
Dramatic Arts Studio Theatre

In Eurydice, a fresh look at one of the greatest love stories of all time, playwright Sarah Ruhl re-imagines the classic myth of Orpheus through the eyes of its heroine. Eurydice and her musician-lover, Orpheus, are a happy modern couple. On their wedding day, Eurydice is enticed by a letter from her deceased father, only to find herself reunited with him in the underworld. As Orpheus tries to rescue her, Eurydice must re-learn human language in order to remember all she left behind and, ultimately, choose between two worlds in this whimsical and breathtaking story of the power and fragility of love.
