Synopsis: Based on the Greek myth of Orpheus and Eurydice, Sarah Ruhl’s “Eurydice” explores the myth in a new light, focusing on Eurydice’s perspective. Eurydice dies, shortly after her wedding to her lover Orpheus. Eurydice enters the Underworld, and is greeted by her father, who she doesn’t recognize because her memory of earthly life is gone. With devoted and loving conversations, her father is able to revive her memory. Meanwhile, Orpheus devises a way to see her in the Underworld…and Eurydice realizes she has a difficult decision to make regarding her life’s next step. The New York Times describes the play as “an inexpressibly moving theatrical fable about love, loss, and the pleasures and pains of memory.”
