Dalkey Players, Dublin present ‘Eurydice’ by Sarah Ruhl

Synopsis

The Power of Memory to Triumph Over Death: In Eurydice, Sarah Ruhl re-imagines the classic myth of Orpheus through the eyes of its heroine. Dying too young on her wedding day, Eurydice must journey to the underworld, where she reunites with her father and struggles to remember her lost love. With contemporary characters, ingenious plot twists, and breathtaking visual effects, the play is a fresh look at a timeless love story. Eurydice was the 2003 recipient of the Whiting Award for Drama.
