"…weird and wonderful, devastatingly lovely…" (New York Times)

Immerse yourself in a bold and dreamlike retelling of the classic Orpheus in the Underworld myth. Award-winning New York playwright Sarah Ruhl reimagines this story through eyes of its quirky heroine, Eurydice. Dying too young on her wedding day, she is reunited with her long-lost father in the whimsical, Mad-Hatter realm of the underworld, complete with singing stones and a playfully sinister Underlord. Here, she struggles to recall fading memories of her life as both a bride and a daughter. Eurydice is infused with the melancholy music of Orpheus and takes the audience along on her heartfelt and magical journey.
