The Richmond Hill Community Theatre will present “Eurydice,” a stunning spin on the Greek myth of Orpheus told from the perspective of his wife, Sept 9, 10 and 11 at the Wetlands Center in J.F. Gregory Park.
“Eurydice” focuses on the subjects of family, love and loss. On the day of her wedding, Eurydice falls victim to a tragic accident that sends her hurtling into an Alice-In-Wonderland-esque underworld. Ripped from her beloved Orpheus, Eurydice is reunited with her dead father in the Land of the Dead. Torn between the love of her life and reconnecting with the father she once knew, what will Eurydice choose? Full of dark humor, lyrical beauty and wit, Sarah Ruhl’s “Eurydice” transforms a traditional myth into a visceral, contemporary meditation on love worth grieving for.
