By Sarah Ruhl, Directed by Diane Brewer
Discounted tickets: $10
The most widely acclaimed and influential female playwright of the decade, Sarah Ruhl imaginatively and lyrically recounts the classic Greek myth of Orpheus, only this time through the eyes of the heroine. After tragically dying on her wedding day, Eurydice must face a surreal underworld, including a raining elevator, a swim across a memory-erasing river, and a chorus of talking stones. This Pulitzer Prize-nominated playwright utilizes powerful imagery and a sense of wonderment to gently move audiences through an enduringly appealing story of love and its fragility.
